MIT Helping Autonomous Vehicles See Around Corners

If I've said it once, I've said it a million times, autonomous cars are never going to be plausible until ALL cars are autonomous and can speak to each other in real time. Humans are the weak link in the autonomous vehicle chain.

Autonomous cars could one day use the system to quickly avoid a potential collision with another car or pedestrian emerging from around a building’s corner or from in between parked cars. In the future, robots that may navigate hospital hallways to make medication or supply deliveries could use the system to avoid hitting people.
