CMU issued a press release on a collaboration between the school and General Motors Research & Development Lab. Together they will establish a new Autonomous Driving Collaborative Research Lab (CRL). A previous CRL was set up with help from GM in 2000 and renewed in 2003. According to Larry Burns of GM, "technologies ranging from electronics, controls and software to wireless capabilities and digital mapping could ultimately change how people drive and use their vehicles. Imagine being virtually chauffeured safely in your car while doing your e-mail, eating breakfast and watching the news. The work we're doing with Carnegie Mellon is a big stepping stone toward making this a reality." See also the GM version of the press release
