A Robot that Really Drives

Bot in the Driver's Seat Source:  IVObility. Beyond Autonomous Israeli start-up IVObility is developing a robot that can sit in the driver's seat of an ordinary car and drive it.  The robot does this with sensors and cameras that see exactly what a human driver sees and the bot drives accordingly.  This is a new iteration on autonomous vehicles. Remarkable Technology & Innovation The driver robot is set to launch in 2020 at first for government and commercial uses that don't run on public roads.  A consumer version is also being considered.  What's remarkable is that the robot in the driver's seat doesn't require special drive-by-wire equipment.  It's able to drive autonomously on its own technological capacity.  IVObility stands for Intelligent Vehicle Operator and mobility.
