Driverless cars coming, but consumers not ready yet

Drivers still need to be convinced to let go of the steering wheel and be taken to their destination, driver surveys say -- in spite of the fact that driverless technology is already in some cars.

"I would say that most of what is going to come into these driverless cars is already there in present-day cars, for example night vision or lane departure warning [systems]," Prana Natarajan, team leader for Chassis & Safety at Frost & Sullivan.

"We've been seeing these kind of systems for quite some time now -- lane keeping assistance has been around since 2004. Taking it to the next level is what most automakers are trying to do here."

Cars like the BMW X5 and the Mercedes Benz E-Class due out in 2014 will have basic features like traffic-jam assistance, which manoeuvers the car thought the congestion before prompting the driver to take over, Natarajan said, while pedestrian and animal detection were already on some existing models from Volvo and BMW.
