The MadeInGermany (MIG) car was developed by researchers from the Freie Universität Berlin. The Modified Volkswagen Passat uses, LiDAR, Radar, cameras, GPS and more to navigate the streets of Berlin autonomously. In the system demoed below, a human used an iPad to summon the autonomous Taxi Cab to his current location. Once the taxi arrives, he can use the iPad to tell the robot where to go.
The next step would be to make it black and more stylish (a vintage Pontiac Firebird Trans Am would do the job nicely), and give it a younger version of German pop star as a pilot/sidekick. Oh! it would also be very important to loose the LiDAR at the top and replace it with better looking scanner lights.
