Autonomous car completes 3,400-mile US road trip with almost no hands at the wheel (DEE-ANN DURBIN, 4/02/15, AP)

An autonomous vehicle has completed a 3,400-mile U.S. road trip with almost no intervention from drivers.

Auto supplier Delphi Corp. says the Audi Q5 fitted with radar, cameras and laser sensors drove itself 99 percent of the time from San Francisco to New York.

Drivers intervened once when traffic was weaving around in a construction zone, and again when the car didn't want to move into a busy left lane. But for the most part, it easily navigated bridges, traffic circles and open highways.
