The day of the driverless car is gaining ground.  Fast. 

 

What was once a science fiction fantasy is exploding into a legitimate industry.  Connected vehicles have caught the attention of such companies as Tesla, Uber and even Google.  Now, add the U.S. military to that list.  In Michigan, an Army research and development lab is experimenting with cargo hauling trucks to learn how to run automated supply convoys.  The goal is to save time, fuel and human lives.
