The word ”Autonomous” has frequented the Consumer Electronics Showroom (CES) floor since the very first show in June, 1967. The first semi-automated car was developed in 1977 by Japan’s Tsukuba Mechanical Engineering Laboratory, and required specially marked streets that were interpreted by two cameras on the vehicle and an analog computer. The vehicle reached speeds up to 30 kilometers per hour (19 mph) with the support of an elevated rail. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Self-driving_car
