The whispers are developing into murmurs from automakers on plans to follow Google's lead and develop self-driving car concepts. While Google has already successfully auto-piloted its test car through traffic in Silicon Valley, major automakers start to ramp up. Nissan (NSANY.OB) unveiled a futuristic driverless car at a tech show - while Ford (F), Audi (VLKAY.PK), and BMW (BAMXY.PK) are in a testing phase. The end game: Down the road, the technology could be developed to automate simple driving in places such as college campuses or business complexes before hitting mainstream roads.
