Would you trust your ride to a computer? Autonomous vehicles might sound futuristic, but they're just about a daily reality. The problem is… are they safe? Can we trust a computer to drive our car for us? SunTrax is located off I-4 between Orlando and Tampa, and is a large-scale, cutting-edge facility dedicated to the research, development and testing of emerging transportation technologies in safe and controlled environments. We talk about the technology on the horizon, as well as the protections for the consumer that lawmakers say need to be in place.
