BMW self-driving car drifting around track without human intervention
BMW has demonstrated self-driving cars that can "drift" around bends and slalom between cones.

The modified 2-Series Coupe and 6-Series Gran Coupe are able to race around a track whilst power sliding around corners without any driver intervention.

The on-board computer uses a 360-degree radar, ultrasonic sensors and cameras to sense and adapt to their surroundings.

Car manufactures are aiming to use such technology to lower accidents caused by human error, using the technology to avoid crashes.

Autonomous vehicles are not allowed on European roads just yet, but driver-less cars are sure to be seen in the near future.
