Yet another car company is experimenting with self-driving technology -- it's only smart considering how fast these advancements are coming along -- with its Toyota Invisible Copilot. Currently a mix of real and virtual tests, the auto maker is attempting to train its cars to not only drive on their own, but to take the control of the wheel when the driver is in trouble.

Describing the system as a guardian angel of sorts, the Toyota Invisible Copilot differentiates itself for other similar programs by exploring the balance between man and machine. The Toyota Invisible Copilot will rely both on machine and human driving to practice safety. The tests will include a giant simulator to test such things as realistic crash scenarios in a non-threatening way.
