While many companies have been testing driverless cars, including brands such as Google, another business titled Cruise is experimenting with the RP-1. This can attach to a variety of cars, turning any automobile into an autonomous force.

The kit is attached to the roof, and comes with sensors that allow it to detect other cars or objects in the area. The device uses "computer vision algorithms" to ensure everything stays safe and on-track, allowing the driver to relax and not worry about getting into an accident.

The thought of driverless cars still scares most people, even though the number of accidents that happen per year is already astronomical. Perhaps this attachment will bring people round to the idea.
