Delphi Automotive has a self-driving car, modeled after a 2014 Audi SQ5, that completed a 3,500-mile trip in March 2015 from San Francisco, California to New York, setting the North American record for longest drive ever by a driverless car. The self-driving car, which debuted at CES 2015, features six long-range radars, four short-range radars, three vision-based cameras, six lidars, a localization system, intelligent software algorithms and a full suite of Advanced Drive Assistance Systems. The car can manage four-way stops, merge onto highways, and steer around unexpected presences in the roadway, such as a bicyclist.
