Sure, they seem to be all the rage today, but even back in 1984, Carnegie Mellon was researching computer-controlled vehicles, and its retrofitted Army ambulance was on the roads in Pittsburgh through the '90s. The Verge took a drive down memory lane to introduce us to that vehicle known as ALVINN, the Autonomous Land Vehicle In a Neural Network.
