14. Baidu

Baidu, the Chinese search engine, tests out a modified BMW 3-Series. The fully-autonomous car drove 18.6 miles route around the streets and highways of Beijing, making all kinds of turns, switching lanes, passing, and even successfully merging onto and off the highway. It plans to release self-driving cars within three years.
