Driverless car completes 5,500km ride across US

Gadget Reviews IndiaAccording to the British-based auto-firm Delphi, the feat marks the first and longest US coast-to-coast trip ever taken by an automated vehicle.
The trip spanned across the southern US with the car successfully travelling from San Francisco, California to New York City.
The Roadrunner car set of with a group of engineers from Treasure Island in the San Francisco Bay on March 22.
The subsequent journey took it through 15 states and the District of Columbia.
The Roadrunner was faced with a wide variety of driving situations to navigate during the trip, including traffic circles, construction zones, bridges, tunnels, aggressive drivers and differing weather conditions.
Although an engineer was in the driving seat ready to take control if needed, the car undertook 99 percent of the drive in fully automated mode, Delphi said.
The vehicle is equipped with numerous technologies in order to drive autonomously.
