Going driverless in Southwest Florida
Vasilas Karavidas maneuvers the bright red six-seater into the traffic lane Friday afternoon with his lap dog Alfa by his side.
But Karavidas isn’t driving the red mini van — there’s no steering wheel on this model — he’s programming it on his laptop computer.
The sight of a sandhill crane on this road is more likely than his Easymile AV (autonomous vehicle). But after a day tinkering and testing, the mini will hit the roads at Babcock Ranch this weekend, where it will take people around the property.
