This June, Future Tense has been interrogating the promises and perils of self-driving cars as part of our ongoing project Futurography, which introduces readers to a new technological or scientific topic each month. Now’s your chance to show how much you’ve learned.

We suspect you’ll do pretty well, but you might want to brush up first by rereading a few of the articles we’ve published on the topic.


Update, July 5, 2016: Shortly after this quiz was published, Tesla announced that a driver had died in a crash while his Model S was in autopilot mode. One of the questions has been updated to reflect this news.

This article is part of the self-driving cars installment of Futurography, a series in which Future Tense introduces readers to the technologies that will define tomorrow. Each month from January through June 2016, we’ll choose a new technology and break it down. Read more from Futurography on self-driving cars:
