cartechboy (2660665) writes "Multiple automakers have already committed to selling autonomous vehicles by 2020, but only a handful of them have actually started testing and developing them. Now Volvo is putting self-driving test cars on real public roads in Sweden among other, non-autonomous traffic. Volvo's calling the project "Drive Me — Self-driving cars for sustainable mobility." The test cars are now able to handle lane following, speed adaption and merging traffic all by themselves," Volvo engineer Erik Coelingh said in a statement. "This is an important step towards our aim that the final Drive Me cars will be able to drive the whole test route in highly autonomous mode." The goal for the Drive Me project is to deliver 100 autonomous cars to customers in Gothenburg by 2017. Will Volvo be able to meet that goal? Probably, because this is the future. Are you scared?"
