VW has debuted it's Auto-Pilot technology that allows cars to drive by themselves.... at speeds of up 80mph! (You can check it our right here.) VW says the new feature uses ultrasonic and radar-based sensors, laser scanners, video cameras and an electronic horizon to allow the car to read and react to road conditions by itself. And keeps a specific distance between your cars and the cars around you. Heck, Tommy couldn't even do all of that at the same time, three decades ago!
VW says the auto feature is supposed to be a second set of eyes in case the of driver distraction or fatigue. (Whatever happened to pulling over?!)
What do you think? How long will it take before drivers start allowing their VW to do the driving? Is this the same as cruise control, as VW claims, or is this one step away from napping behind the wheel?
