Volvo announced last winter that it was testing its self-driving cars. Now, Volvo is planning on getting about 100 of them on the road by 2017. The first few self-driving cars are already joining humans on the road. The cars are approved to mingle with other commuter vehicles over about 31 miles of roadways across Gothenburg's major arteries.
