Hyperlane – a separate lane for driverless cars

Two graduates from the University of California at Berkeley have developed a separate lane for driverless cars and named it Hyperlane.

According to authors, a separate lane can be built on already existing routes. Autonomous vehicles will be able to move at the speed of 190 km per hour. It will decrease traffic on main roads and prevent traffic jams.

Hyperlane will be equipped with the high speed Internet access (5G technology) and a central traffic regulation system. That’s how it will look like: Hyperlane central computer will control an autonomous car (its speed and traffic density) on the lane.

But there’s the other side of the coin. Experts claim that creation of an additional lane and necessary infrastructure will cost around $12 mln per mile (~1,6 km).
