The University of California San Diego will turn its campus into a test bed for self-driving vehicles starting in January 2018.
The project will be implemented in stages. The first will be to put self-driving mail delivery carts on the road. The carts will run on algorithms developed by UC San Diego researchers who are part of the Contextual Robotics Institute. Backup drivers will initially ride in the carts as a safety measure.
