Or is this impossible?

You do know that google has built actual, self-driving vehicles that have logged over 100,000 miles, over 1000 of that completely without human intervention (and the rest with only occasion human help), right?

I would say that if this can be done, what you are trying to do is certainly possible. Indeed, here is this:

This guy managed to do this while taking a free online course from Stanford (which I also participated in - it was an excellent course taught be Andrew Ng, who is an excellent instructor):

If that isn't enough, you could always take this course (better hurry - starts on Monday!):

...yeah, I'd say it's possible...

Are those cars using sensors and position information?

I find it harder to express logic in English than in Code.
Sometimes an example says more than many times as many words.

The nnrc car is using video.  The OP wanted to do it without any input, except maybe wheel position?
