Wait, What?!: VW's, Now With More Autopilot
The system pairs Lane Assist with cruise control, and can be overridden by the driver at any time. The TAP [Temporary Auto Pilot] system's Pilot Mode uses radar, laser, camera, and ultrasonic sensors to maintain a safe distance between vehicles, start and stop in traffic, and slow down before a bend. Speed is set by the driver, who you'll need to remain aware of your surroundings in case you need to take over control -- so don't get too comfortable poking around the menus on that AppRadio just yet.
Oh right, like people aren't gonna try to sleep with the thing on. And by sleep I mean have sex with the backseat. I think I've told you before but I saw a woman driving to work a couple months ago right in front of my house READING A BOOK AND EATING A BOWL OF CEREAL. Huh? Yes with liquid milk -- it was f***in' nuts! I tried yelling at her but she obviously couldn't hear me over her headphones.
Thanks to Ferrous, who agrees this technology has existed forever: it's called your knee.
