Volvo plans driverless car test in Gothenburg, Sweden

Volvo has specific plans to put 100 driverless cars on actual commuter roads around Sweden’s second largest city. The project starts in 2014 with a goal of cars on the road by 2017.

This is PR for Volvo, but it also assigns a date certain for putting driverless vehicles on the road with the rest of us. Makes all this much more real to me.
