TRACKING THE FACTS ABOUT DRIVERLESS CARS

In the Life Online series, characters travel around in ‘transports’  described as: driverless vehicles with the functionality to move with wheels or to hover through the air forward, backward and sideways on bare floors, carpets, gravel, grass, cement, ice, snow and heated terrain.  In other words – these cars can fly!

Current technology is focused on self-driving or driverless cars which are essentially today’s cars without a human at the controls.  We are all still waiting for our ‘Jetsonmobiles.’
