You’ve probably heard that Google has been working for years to develop self-driving cars but the searcher giant isn’t the only game in town when it comes to autonomous driving. Toyota and Audi are preparing to show off their own semi-driverless cars at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show which opens next Tuesday in Las Vegas.
Toyota will be bringing a version of its luxury Lexus LS that sports a spinning radar on top of the car and camera equipment on the front. The car also features technology called Intelligent Transport Systems, which allows the car to communicate with other vehicles on the road as well as with the highway .
Audi will be bringing a car that can find a parking space on its own, and park itself without help from a driver. Audi’s been working on autonomous vehicle technology for quite a while, as have Ford and Mercedes-Benz. A driverless future might be coming sooner than you think but we’ll have to wait for CES 2013 to roll around to find out more.
