In February 1958 GM Research Laboratories demonstrated an automatically guided passenger car, steered and controlled by signals from an electric cable beneath the road surface. In June 1960, outside RCAs David Sarnoff Research Center, Princeton NJ, a full scale automotive automatic pilot system was demonstrated. Both cars in this photo are automatically guided by electrical signals from the road.
