An automated car successfully completed the first transcontinental drive from San Francisco to New York. With a human at the wheel for less than 1% of the trip, the vehicle collected three terabytes of information that will be used to improve automaker Delphi's active safety technology.

"The knowledge obtained from this trip will help optimize our existing active safety products and accelerate our future product development, which will allow us to deliver unsurpassed automotive grade technologies to our customers," said Jeff Owens, Delphi chief technology officer.

Throughout the nine-day, 3,400-mile journey, the vehicle encountered its fair share of obstacles, including construction, traffic circles, inclement weather and, perhaps most frighteningly, other drivers.
