Self-Driving Cars Without Passengers | EE Times via @eetimes

Their current CoCar prototypes work by finding usage cases where passengers are not present. For instance, next year one level of a Stuttgart parking garage will forbid the presence of humans since each parking place is equipped with an autonomous recharging station. Consumer electric vehicles will be equipped with standardized recharge plug-ins and be left at the entrance by their drivers. The parking garage itself will be equipped with a central "brain" that alerts the vehicle of the location of the nearest empty parking space. The vehicle--equipped with FZI's algorithms in its flash memory — will drive-by-wire to the parking spot, back in and automatically plug-into the recharging station. When the owner returns, his cars will be "called" and unplug and drive itself to the waiting area at the entrance to the garage where the owner will pick-it-up.
