Are robotic vehicles the future of driving? Stanford University researchers think so. They've invented, Junior, a four-wheeled autonomous vehicle that drives just like a regular car, but without the need for a human operator. SmartPlanet looks at the internal systems behind Junior and how it's able to sense obstacles, make turns, and avoid collisions.

Taking a moment to be proud of my alma mater, and its willingness to be on the cutting edge of things, I hope its Business School will wake up to humanity's need to leave the world of 'profit' and interest-bearing money behind - separate lifestyle from needing to have jobs that robots can do - and help us REALLY move into the future. Just think: no more wars, no more poverty, no more crime...just people giving of their best, to create a smart planet of souls, living in community; to say as well, in common unity. One Planet - One Humanity - One Destiny. That's the ticket.
