Re: What? The car can't do emergency braking on it's own?
It's amazing how utterly misguided the whole autonomous car business currently is.. driven by completely the wrong use-cases
Instead of trying to be just like a regular car, actual autonomous will drive much slower on normal roads, with the focus being on productive use of time rather than reduced time. Smooth, but slower vehicles will allow people to work, watch a film, or sleep whilst in the pod.. much like a commuter train.
