HYDERABAD: Director of IIIT-Hyderabad, Prof PJ Narayanan, on Tuesday, responding to a query on driverless cars, said that while research is going on, there is a need to develop technologies faced in a city with bad roads.“As of now, on a pilot basis we are running a driverless car fitted with video camera, on our campus.
