Han Min-hong, a South Korean professor, built and successfully tested a self-driving car in 1993. The car traveled 185 miles from Seol to Busan through one of South Korea’s most heavily-traveled expressways. Despite the amazing results, the government scrapped funding for his research. Here’s some of the footage from the 90s. As it’s shown in the video, there is a video camera with infra-red sensors sensing cars at the front and automatically reducing speed and stuff.
