But then again …. #Driverless taxis are hitting the streets of Japan next year #ai #artificialintelligence #driverlesscar

Self-driving car technology has come a long way in a very short space of time: since Google et al. kicked off their autonomous automobile programmes, the idea of letting robots take the wheel has become more and more plausible. And now a fleet of self-driving taxis is scheduled to take to the roads in Japan as early as next year.

As The Wall Street Journal reports, a partnership between the Japanese federal government and Robot Taxi will see 50 people take part in a trial scheme in the Kanagawa prefecture, just south of Tokyo.
