    A self-driving car is set to start a road trip across the country Sunday.
    The 3,500-mile trip from California to New York is the longest automated drive ever attempted in North America.
    Delphi Automotive PLC's vehicle is the driverless-car making the trip, according to a press release.

    Delphi's Chief Technology Officer Jeff Owens said the car has been successfully tested on streets in California and Las Vegas, but the cross-country trip will be the car's "ultimate test."
    "The vehicle will be challenged under a variety of driving conditions from changing weather and terrain to potential road hazards -- things that could never truly be testing in a lab," the release says.
    The car is supposedly able to navigate 4-way stops, merge onto highways and even maneuver around bicyclists -- all without a driver.
