Abstract: The development and public acceptance of driverless cars has been very rapid. Twenty driverless Uber cars now regularly offer rides in the U.S. city of Pittsburgh. The implications of autonomous vehicles are profound, from public safety to commuting, delivery of goods and automobile insurance. But how do driverless cars work, and are they trustworthy? In this largely non-technical talk we will take a look under the hood and review the amazing components of a driverless vehicle. Videos showing how a driverless car sees its environment are included.
