SAN DIEGO — UC San Diego will be conducting a study of self-driving cars on campus coming this January, which will consist of testing the vehicle technology to deliver mail around campus, reported The Guardian.

In addition to mail delivery, the self-driving cars may also act as a resource to facilities management by providing data on the quality of campus roads, the report said.

Henrik Christensen, the founding director of the Contextual Robotics Institute, which is leading the research, hopes to upgrade to a transportation system after the mail delivery system has been smoothed out, according to The Guardian.
