The rise of the autonomous car is slow and steady, but as cities prepare for the onslaught of self-driving cars the Superloop road intersection design could have them covered.

Designed by Atis Sedlenieks, the Superloop works by accommodating all the needs of a modern metropolis. Created for the the Tallinn Architecture Biennale 'Self-Driven City' project, the Superloop sees a more efficient way to build intersections in the future.

Being that autonomous cars would do away with human error, higher speeds would be able to be achieved, which would likely only be inhibited by road intersections. The Superloop looks to make intersections slightly subterranean to make the most of every inch in urban areas where space is limited.
