A computer driven car: reality?

It's such a smart idea: start a competition, award a price, and have universities, investors and other cooperate to do amazing stuff. In 2006 Darpa did the desert challenge, where cars had to finish a course without human intervention. In 2007 they upped the ante: the cars had to finish an urban course, avoiding other vehicles on the track, abide the traffic rules (stop at lines, let other vehicles go first). Would you enter a care without a human, and have it drive you to your destination in a crowded city? Well, look like what the teams already accomplished!

The same way of working by the X-Prize-foundation led to the development of a vehicle for commercial human space-flight.
