How long until cars can self-park? Maybe not as long as you'd think.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer article, “Driverless cars are speeding toward us and some hope Ohio jumps aboard” by Robert L. Smith explores advances in autonomous vehicle technology happening in Ohio and features work done by Umit Ozguner, professor of electrical and computer engineering, and others at the Ohio State Center for Automotive Research.

Ozguner is one of several faculty from the departments of electrical and computer engineering, and computer science and engineering, who are working to scale up the capabilities of fully autonomous vehicles so that they are capable of operating in mixed-traffic urban environments with many other vehicles, including those driven by humans. Their research is funded with a $1.5 million grant from the National Science Foundation’s Cyber-Physical Systems program.
