Autonomous vehicles?

One question on the whole topic: Would you be willing to sign your name to the certicicate stating that the system was "safe enough", in todays litigous climate? I don't think that I would be willing to do that. Yes, there would be honour and fame, but also herds of hungry lawyers. Not within a few hours.

There are some options that I think are a good idea.  Adaptive cruise control that maintains a 'safe' distamce from the car ahead, and then resumes speed.  But I don't like the function that the car applies the brakes if a collision is imminent.  Supposedly the braking will be harsh so that the driver that is texting rather than driving will be unnerved, and not rely on this feature.  I don't think I would be comfortable letting the car have control.  However, this might be perfect for the driver that would rather text or read a book.

great idea to have self-driven cars but as they say, it could have disadvantages... not being safe enough. this volkswagen r5 has enhanced high tech car parts system like radar gps and inertial system. wish I could rebuild on my vw too... I do search car parts in jcwhitney site...this is where I get cheap car interior accessories
