CES: Audi shows driverless car will also pick you up

Wednesday, January 09, 2013

We've heard of cars that drive themselves, but what about a driverless car that will also come pick you up?

Audi is showing a car at the Consumer Electronics Show that does exactly that. The car not only parks itself, but also drives over and picks you up. ABC technology editor Joanna Stern says you call it with your smartphone.

"Seeing a driverless car on its own is really amazing, but also being able to press a button on the phone, see the car start up and then arrive where you're standing is downright amazing," said Stern.

However, Audi says it is still 10 years off before you will be able to buy one.
