Ernst Dickmanns’ VaMoRs Mercedes van, Bundeswehr University Munich, 1986-2003. Dickmanns’ laboratory substantially pioneered practical self-driving technology; this van tested three generations of systems. Dickmanns’ 1993 VaMP Mercedes sedan would cover thousands of miles in traffic at up to 110 mph as part of the massive Eureka PROMETHEUS project.


Many think this all developed 'overnight'...or in the last 10-15 yrs...hardly...

Many, many contributors, toiled in 'relative' obscurity, over many years.

As far as auto-mobiles....it's getting closer to the tipping point to becoming practical for mass adoption.
