It’s a familiar route from your front door to your office, but what if your car could drive itself between the two?

The AA has warned that the cost of petrol is set to rise again with predictions that prices will reach a record high by the end of August.

Over time, the nut that holds on the steering wheel can become loose.
Drivers could start notice some wobbling of the wheel and if this is ignored there is the possibility that it could come completely off.
There have been a few incidents of steering wheels becoming loose, but there have been no accidents.
Nissan is recalling thousands of cars in the UK due to a potential steering wheel problem.
The recall affects 133,869 Nissan Micras made between December 2002 and May 2006 and is part of a worldwide recall of 841,000 Micras.
The scope of the Japanese airbag problem is a little wider than first reported, with a total of around 3.4 million vehicles set to be recalled worldwide.
The recall includes 490,000 cars in Europe and 580,000 from North America.
The concern is that airbags in front of the vehicles' front passenger seat may not inflate when required, a spokesman for Toyota said.
He added that no injuries or deaths had been reported because of the fault.
Speed cameras have been switched off in part of the UK because they are too costly to run.
The last of the West Midlands' 304 fixed cameras ceased operating today following a decision by West Midlands Police last year.
The decision has the backing of the region's councils which make up the West Midlands Road Safety Partnership Board, with the police now using mobile speed cameras instead.
Budget cuts are at the heart of decision says West Midlands Police's Assistant Chief Constable Garry Forsyth.
It has been the force's job to manage and pay to run the sites, including traffic light cameras, with councils paying for maintenance.
However, the cash-strapped local authorities balked at the estimated £580,000 cost of upgrading the cameras to digital film, and do not have the money to continue running them. Removing the cameras would cost £600,000.
The police are now using mobile cameras at speeding hotspots across Birmingham, Coventry, and the Black Country.
A 28-year-old from London has become Britain's worst driver after failing his driving theory test 107 times.
He's so far spent more than £3,000 trying to pass the test, which includes a 57 minute multiple choice examination and a hazard perception test.
Motorists must pass both before they can sit a practical test.
It may not please the boy racers and their ilk - but a motoring invention that answers the prayer of many a weary driver, could be just a bit nearer. Scientists are testing a car that remembers your regular routes - so that it can drive itself.
ITV News reporter Lewis Vaughan Jones reports:
An Oxford University professor explained how the UK's entry into self-drive cars uses a more affordable system of lasers and camera.
Professor Paul Newman said: "When the car is driving, it is using a small, quite cheap laser on the front of the car that casts a curtain of laser light vertically around.
"As the car moves, it paints the world with this invisible laser light and produces a local idea of what the world looks like in 3D."
The UK's low-cost navigation system can recognise its surroundings using small cameras and lasers discreetly built into the body of the car.
The vehicle is an adapted electric road car, linked to a computer in its boot, and controlled from an iPad mounted on the car's dashboard.
