tcd004 writes: Before you roll an autonomous car out on the street, you have to test. Robotics engineers at G.W. University's Autonomous Robotics & Perception Group test their autonomous car systems on a tiny racetrack, complete with jumps, a half-pipe and a loop-the-loop. The team, which specializes in computer localization technologies, has contributed to Google's Project Tango for a year. The ever-shrinking electronics that give computers, robots and cars the ability to understand 3-D space are laying the foundation for a revolution in autonomous applications.
