Driverless cars have been cruising along high-tech highways in Hollywood for years, like in the 1990 film "Total Recall", reports “Wnep”.
Newswatch 16 wanted to find out when all of us could hop into a car in our area that’ll drive itself. “Well, there’s been tremendous progress, but there’s a long way to go,” said Roger Cohen from PennDOT. “The driving environment is incredibly complex, and the cars have a lot to learn.” To help us learn more about driverless cars, Newswatch 16 turned to Cohen. He’s PennDOT’s policy director and co-chair of the autonomous vehicle policy task force, a.k.a. Pennsylvania’s driverless car guru.
