I can't imagine them making it so you can't drive if you want to. However, personally...I'd like to spend my 45 minute drive to work eating breakfast and watching some TV, and reading OCN.

As much as I'd like the engineers to be recognized as the heroes in racing, I just don't see myself cheering wildly for a Team if it's just about having better programming than the other team..

Wait what? Just because they have all those assists does not mean that the driver makes no difference. The driver makes a huge difference. The aids and electronic assist just allow the driver to unleash the cars potential. Michael S. was able to do this with Ferrari's brilliant team, which is how he was able to absolutely dominate the sport in his prime. It was a perfect combination of driver, team, and car. Kimi and the other drivers since, while they are good, still cannot compare to what he was able to do with a car. Granted he is a freak of nature behind the wheel. I love F1 and WRC, NASCAR however I find mind numbingly boring. The challenge with F1 is finding the right driver for the car. Each teams car handles and responds differently. Mercedes-Mcleran deal better with wet than Ferrari. This is where the driver choice comes into play, not to mention you also have the psychology to factor in. Biggest example here is Raikonnen vs Hamilton. Hamilton has a habit of trying to get under the skin of Raikonnen to get him to loose his cool and succeds very often, usualy it ends up costing Raikonnen the win. He is an emotional racer and falls for the mind games way too much.

Edit : Ah got distracted. On topic, this is awesome! Cannot imagine how hard that little computer had to be working to calculate the best way to push the car. I would love to see if they could pull this off with drifting! Set up a match between a computer and Block lol. Block vs Tsuchiya vs Computer Driven car...............Can't imagine how hard it would be to have the program calculate all those variables. How do you tell it when there is too much wheel spin or that a spin out is approaching?

OOOO OOOOO OOOO! lol, put this car on Laguna Seca! That drop..........it's brutal!

I didn't mean that the drivers didn't matter. I actually find F1 boring since contact between cars is usually disastrous so they don't really happen. But, having AI driven racing is like having the F1 constructor's championship and that's it. And I never knew about that championship existed until 4 years ago. Though if they ever do get AI to drive all our car's my only problem with it would be that if they'd still let us disengage autopilot for a B-road thrash :/

And anyway, there's no chess set in existence that was named after the computer that beat Kasparov is there?


20 mpg in a Subaru? I think you should lay off the boost more ^^ not that I would either if it had 400 bhp..

Without the driver racing is just no fun. Useless.
post #36 of 37
I see some pretty huge advantages, i mean currently cars are the best form of transport in terms of ability to reach certain types of destinations in a given time, blah blah.. what an automated personal car would offer is improved safety. There are a lot of people on the roads that shouldn't be there but are given/retain licences more out of necessity.

If that necessity was taken away, licences could still be obtained but they would be much harder to do so, you would need to be a damn good driver, and a safe one.

Also, you could take your car somewhere like out to a party, get hammered and let your car drive you home. It can only be a positive thing the way I see if.

Racing maybe less fun, but DRIVING such as on a long road trip would not be as boring with this tech.
