Re: Latency? In my self-driving car?

I wonder if they're talking about something like a line of autonomous cars traveling bumper to bumper at 200 kph. If say a rockslide happens and the lead car has to emergency brake, all the other cars have to do so instantly. I'd rather rely on M2M communication (at a lower frequency band so the lead car's broadcast is heard by all cars at once even if the rear car is around a corner separated by solid rock) than a 5G tower being up and maintaining 1ms latency.
