Now, Flossie, meet your car counterpart, Tony.
Well, Tony is not its actual name. The robot, by Anthony Best Dynamics in Wiltshire, England, is an in-vehicle system that can steer, accelerate, brake, and change gears. I think they call it SR30. I like Tony more.
The robot driver can automatically follow a GPS-defined route stored in its memory (try that humans) or be remote controlled by operators, a feature that should be helpful during the "vehicle misuse testing."
Check out the videos below.
And if you haven't seen Flossie in action, the video is here.
