Navigating the Way to Autonomous Vehicles: Who’s in the Driver’s Seat?
The race to bring highly automated vehicles (HAVs, or robocars) to the masses is gaining momentum, as well as plenty of capital. One of the most recent developments is Ford's billion-dollar investment in Argo AI, a start-up specializing in artificial intelligence, robotics and self-driving cars. Not long ago, GM took on a similar venture with the purchase of Cruise Automation. These are just two examples out of many, highlighting the amount of cash flowing to the advancement and honing of intelligent car systems.
