Imagine that your car could navigate the streets of Edmonton without you ever having to touch the steering wheel. What year is it? 2075? Think again. According to Google Vice-President and leading developer of the autonomous car, the dream of stepping into a car that can drive is now a reality, and could be on the market within five years.
