Robots learning how to drive a car? With autonomous cars coming, we many not need a robotic driver to take the wheel. But future robots might be able to handle the job. The below video shows a NAO robot driving a car. A laser range finder under the car helps it avoid obstacles and use SLAM algorithms to learn and map the environment around the robot.
You can find out more about this exciting project on RobotsLAB. In the near future, we will be able to order our robots to do things for us. These guys show that future is not too far way.
