Michel Parent and Arnaud de La Fortelle have released a new paper titled Cybercars: Past, Present and Future of the Technology (PDF format). Cybercars is a general term that has become popular in Europe to describe autonomous vehicles designed to move people around cities. The first Cybercars were put into service in 1997 to shuttle people to and from long term parking at airports. As they become more advanced Cybercars are becoming able to negotiate normal city traffic. We reported last year about Antibes testing autonomous taxis called CyCabs. The paper summarizes topics that include control, obstacle avoidance, platooning (similar to swarming), localization, and navigation.
