The United States has spent nearly $100 million to develop and build its first autonomous vehicle that will be able to drive itself to and from the hospital.
The first of these cars, called ATC, will be unveiled on Monday.
The project is being led by the University of Michigan and its autonomous vehicle partner, Otto, which will take the vehicle to the hospital for a medical procedure.
The first-ever self-driving vehicle was recently tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which said that the first cars will be capable of traveling at speeds of up to 80 mph, though there will be limitations in the actual driving conditions.
The system will also be able “to navigate on a roadway” and “be able to perform various tasks” without human intervention.
The initial vehicle, which was not ready to go into production, will have a range of 50 miles (80 kilometers), and the second prototype, which is expected to go in 2018, will only have a speed limit of 15 mph.
ATC is one of several vehicles that the U.S. has developed to help the federal government and private companies better manage and manage its roads.
ATC is the first of the two autonomous vehicles to be built by the federal agencies that will take it on.
The U.N. Development Program, which has funded the project, is also funding a program in which U.K.-based ATS and a private company, BlueComet, will develop the systems.
In a press release, the U of M’s Robotic Engineering Lab said the first autonomous vehicles “will have more capabilities than ever before and will be equipped with advanced safety systems to ensure the safety of both drivers and passengers.”
The first self-driven vehicle is expected be ready for use by 2025, and the U-M research team has said that it hopes to have a full-scale vehicle ready for deployment by 2020.
The program will also look at ways to improve the vehicles’ ability to drive through busy intersections.
