Singapore paving the way for cheaper driverless cars

SINGAPORE -- Self-driving cars are much in the news lately, with companies such as U.S. tech titan Google putting autonomous vehicles through their paces.

     Another center of the nascent self-driving car industry is Singapore, where the focus is on lowering the cost of the technology. The National University of Singapore has teamed with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology on a project that recently held a test-drive event where more than 500 people had an opportunity to ride in two prototype vehicles inside a park.
