    iPad Used To Call Driverless Taxi in Germany!

    [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kyk1VLTSH_U[/ame]

    How about this for novel use of an iPad? CNET reports on an autonomous taxi, developed by Autonomos-Labs at Berlin’s Free University in Germany, which can be both hailed and directed using an iPad. The taxi, called Made in Germany (MIG), is equipped with GPS, video cameras, laser scanners, sensors and radars that it uses to draw a 3D map of the road, which it then uses to detect pedestrians and other cars on the road. The iPad app transmits its location to the car via GPS so that it knows where to pick up its potential passengers. You can then watch on the map as the taxi makes its way over to you, and once you’ve been picked up, you can use the iPad to tell the taxi where you want it to take you. Absolutely fascinating stuff, although I’m sure we’re a long way off the authorities ever letting anyone take such a car out on the road!
