For those who have faith in technology, a company in Singapore has made rides in a self-driving taxi available to the public. The trial area is limited to a 2.5 mile square in a business and residential district called “one north.” To get a ride, passengers have to use a special app and request the ‘robo-car’ option. Passengers can ride free, but they must be older than 18, book in advance, and sign a liability waiver. For the time being, the cars have a safety driver who can take over if needed and a researcher in the back to monitor the car’s computer system. The company plans to expand their fleet before the end of 2016, and plan to have a fully self-driving fleet by 2018. —Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell.
