Driverless Cars of the Future Are Here Now [INFOGRAPHIC]

Driverless Cars of the Future Are Here Now [INFOGRAPHIC] | Automobile Engineering | Scoop.it
Driverless cars? That’s some kind of futuristic fantasy, right? Think again. Driverless car technology has taken giant leaps in the past few years — in fact, you might see one driving right next to you any day now.

This tech won’t come a moment too soon, either. According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Association (NHTSA), distracted driving killed 5,474 people in the U.S. in 2009, and that number is only going to get bigger and scarier.

As you can see in the infographic below, help is on the way. Even though ingenious autonomous cars are in the research stage right now, within the next few years you’ll be able to buy one for yourself.

Called the Aventador, it has been described as the closest thing to a stealth fighter jet you'll see on the road. It's also a high-profile symbol of a strategic battle taking shape in the auto industry.
