Driverless Cars

The DOT's exciting decision to choose the University of Wisconsin as an institute for researching this groundbreaking technology is part of a long-term project to eventually make automated cars available to the public, in order to reduce the amount of accidents caused by distractions and human error. A computer would not make such mistakes, and although they are definitely not perfect, they only need to be at least as effective of drivers as humans in order to be viable replacements for them.
