    Have you ever heard about a CAR which drives itself ? General Motors has made it true, A new car which can be driven without a Driver will hit (launched into) the market soon, which is controlled by CENSORS & RADARS and runs through GLOBAL POSITIONING SYSTEM.

    Will it be safe to TRAVEL in that CAR?

      Maybe in the city, if ALL the cars drive themselves.

      Out in rural areas the GPS will more likely put you in the middle of a cow paddock then on a main road.

    No, I haven't. And to tell you the truth, I bet this car will *not* hit the market any time soon. Driving on open road is too complicated of a task to be handled by a modern computer, no matter how powerful it is. In fact, I think there never be a fully automatic car for open roads. There is always something not previously accounted for on the road, and computers fail miserably in such kind of task...

    I think "Hit" is the operative word there.

    Actually, I think we're closer and closer every year.  For instance, there are sensors available now which detect your vehicles proximity to other objects and will alert you if you come too close to another car, a guard rail, even a person.

    Ahh, progress!

    I don't relish the prospect of owning a car that drives itself, where's the fun in that? smile
