NO ONE WILL MISS EUROPEAN DRIVERS:

Driverless car makes Paris to Bordeaux trip (The Local,  06 Oct 2015)

A driverless Citroën has completed a 580-kilometre journey from Paris to Bordeaux in a move that poses a serious challenge to tech giant Google and its self-driving car project.

In an experiment run as part of a conference in Bordeaux on intelligent mobility, the test car made the trip without the help of a driver, at least during the long stretch of smooth autoroute which connects Paris and the southern city.

The Citroën C4 Picasso used in the trial may be nothing special on the outside, but the bog-standard exterior hides a battery of relatively cheap microsensors like those used in aircraft and submarines for a number of years now.
