* Car will be able to hand control back to the driver in difficult situations
* Group recently demonstrated autonomous driving on a 100km road
* Volvo,General Motors, and Volkswagen are working on similar technology
Daimler, the maker of Mercedes-Benz and Smart cars, has announced that it will start selling a self-driving car by 2020.

It is thought the car will be able to drive on its own in most situations but will still hand control back to the driver during difficult situations such as dealing with traffic lights.

The move could help Daimler regain its position as the leading luxury car market from its rival BMW.

will accomplish that in this decade,’ said Daimler head of development Thomas Weber.

The technology featured at this week's Frankfurt car show but won’t come to market for another 10 years.

The German car maker has been working on improving its driverless technology over the past few years and recently became the world’s first car manufacturer to demonstrate autonomous driving in rural and urban traffic.

Last month, a Mercedes Benz S 500 Intelligent Drive research vehicle, drove autonomously through a 100-kilometre-long route from Mannheim to Pforzheim in Germany.

Benz don mess up by revealing their secrets. Now Hyundai and Kia will start working on cars that will be using remote control, 3D glasses (for windscreen) and also drive themselves.

A good devt.

But I doubt if it will work for Nigeria. A place where changes are made every now and then on the road or i̶̲̥̅̊n̶̲̥̅̊ construction of bridges,without up-date on GPS.

Well, maybe i̶̲̥̅̊n̶̲̥̅̊ Abj or P.H.



But forget places like Warri or Lagos or any other place.
Person go fit just dey follow the same road wey em know for years and will just fall into the river..., only to discover that the bridge has been removed d previous night ago undecided


Naija sha.



I still dey hail! cheesy
