The Future Of Driverless Cars Is Now
Just about 34 million people hit the road over the Memorial Day weekend—the most since 2005 and the second-highest total on record. But in the not too distant future we all may be flying to our holiday destinations—in our cars.

And members of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers estimate that up to 75% of all vehicles will be autonomous by 2040. Sound unrealistic? Bruce Gellerman, from Here & Now contributor WBUR reports that part of that future is on the road right now.
