Audi Self-Driving Car Arrives at CES

In January 2015, a self-driving Audi A7 by the name of Jack safely completed a two-day, 550-mile journey from the San Francisco Bay Area to Las Vegas, just in time for the kickoff of CES, the world’s largest consumer electronic event.

I don't think it's an exaggeration to say that this was also a spiritual journey for the Audi team, for the previous year Jack had failed while driving along an open stretch of freeway, requiring a human driver take the wheel and causing much embarrassment in the process.
