Infographic exposes autonomous car history

-October 03, 2017

Who doesn’t like infographics? Well here’s one about the auto industry’s darling: self-driving cars. Lots of interesting historical info and other factoids below. Thanks to for sending it our way. As they say:

…self-driving vehicles are not a brainchild of the 21st century. Inventors were experimenting with remote-control radio systems as early as the 1920s. The world even caught a first glimpse of what the future might look like at the GM Futurama exhibit at the New York World's Fair in 1939. The initial scope of the research into these types of vehicles was quite different and was focused more on independent cars that could “communicate” with magnetic cables on dedicated road systems.
