Mercedes-Benz Unveils Self-Driving Car

YouTube Link

Mercedes-Benz throws its hat into the self-driving car ring with the F 015 Luxury in Motion research vehicle, their new self-driving concept car. Built for four passengers to lounge in what essentially amounts to an automotive conversation pit, the vehicle features four swivel seats that rotate so that the passengers are facing each other.

The view outside can be projected on the inside of the vehicle thanks to six wired, interactive displays. A battery and a hydrogen fuel cell is the driving force; they amount to a range of approximately 680 miles. Simply because this sleek, futuristic automobile has the capability of driving, that doesn't prevent its passengers from taking over the responsibility at any time during the ride.

German drivers tend to follow the rules, their traffic laws are actually enforced by the police, and their driver licenses are more difficult (and expensive) to get. That translates to fewer dumb teenagers who shouldn't be driving, fewer idiots who illegally cruise in the left lane, and a high incentive to drive courteously.
Germany will have successful self-driving cars before the US does because the other cars on the road (driven by humans) are easier to coexist with.
