Germany's Freie University has created an autonomous taxi that can be managed remotely.

Earlier this week, Google introduced their very impressive robot car. It is now turn for Germany's Freie University to flaunt their invention; a modified Volkswagen Passat that is controlled with an iPad. This autonomous taxi is equipped with GPS, radars, scanners and other systems to help it stay on track; the iPad user simply uses a special app to input the coordinates and car itself drives to the user's destination.
