)-- Viewpoints Industry TV will look at the latest head-turning phenomenon that is soon to grace the roadways: a car without a driver. Or at least a driver/passenger who is not actively engaged in controlling the vehicle. A number of automobile makers are developing cars that can drive themselves, allowing the owner to become a passenger and use the travel time to more productive ends. According to the BBC, authorities in the UK are set to permit driverless cars on British roadways beginning in January of 2015. Sweden has authorized Volvo to conduct trials with these autonomous road vehicles beginning in 2017. Three US States -- California, Nevada and Florida -- have also given the go-ahead to test these vehicles on the open road. While highway codes will have to be adapted, the UK has even offered 10 million pounds Sterling as an incentive to the first three automakers to successfully demonstrate the safety and efficiency of their vehicles in street testing. The assumption has been that automated cars will simply take over the tedious chore of driving on behalf of the passengers, but it's possible that certain industries are looking forward to the day when there may be no human in the vehicle at all. For the time being, one of the key requirements of a self-driving car is that a human must be able to quickly take over control of the vehicle in the case of an emergency.
