Abstract
Self-driving cars have been a dream as long automobiles have existed. The automobile is ubiquitous in the developed world and is becoming so in the developing world. In 2007, the world's two largest automakers sold over 18 million vehicles worldwide. As we consider domains to which we can apply intelligent systems, the automotive industry stands out as having the most potential for impact.
