To all those who think that they are more on to it than a computer are just plain vain. I don't care how awesome you think your driving is or how often you practice or how hard it was to get your licence, you will not be as efficient at it as a computer would be, especially in 2040.

Then why not just work towards eliminating the human equation entirely? All become cyborgs, or all become extinct. That's the ultimate solution, is to remove the human populace, because this is where it's heading. No one wants to learn anything new anymore, or do more than the bare minimum. As I said before, it won't be long before children are born without limbs because evolution deems them to be unnecessary due to lack of usage.

These predictions are always off by many decades at a time, we were supposed to have 10GHz stock CPU's and common space travel to the moon and orbiting space stations by now.
When it does happen then I will await to see 10+ car pile ups daily from proposed 100 MPH 10 ft separation between each car when one has a malfunction or collides with something or someone. there's partly a reason aside from human's response time something like .16 seconds if they're on the ball. The car can't just stop, cars have braking distances too, so spaced out traffic is still going to happen since some geniuses decided that adding and removing lanes from freeways for miles at a time was a good idea, road construction (always happening here) traffic lights, and other things. While traffic would be more efficient it would still exist. But I will grab my popcorn for when this system gets the attention of terrorists and hackers, because it has target painted all over it.
Human's are losing their place in this world, once we teach machines to code all by themselves (not just compile) then it's game over cause there will probably be no need for us, time to get augmented...
Edit: I forgot to mention that you can't have fuel efficient cars that get 50+ MPG going at 100 MPH unless we ditch gas, and I bet an electric vehicle wont be capable of that for long enough for a while yet either battery tech keeps getting upgrades, but it never seems to translate into better batteries....

If an automated car brakes... what's the shortest distance it could stop in? Well.... the car next in line would be able to break in that same distance as well. It would need a few microseconds to calculate it needs to stop but that's what the 10ft buffer is for. In addition, all other cars behind that car would know to begin to brake at the same time.

There are plenty of targets for terrorism.... but is that really a good excuse to not advance? Actually, your risk analysis is faulty.... number of people killed by terrorism globally a year... a few thousand. Number of people killed by cars a year.... millions. Cost-benefit choice is obvious. The moment you let the "threat of terrorism" stop you form doing things.... you already lost.


You can have cars going 100MPH with 50MPG....
1) You get the benefit of slipstreaming.... lowered air resistance.
2) No rapid acceleration, rapid deceleration, or unnecessary braking which wastes gas.
3) Engines would have to be optimized to operate at higher speeds

A car train has already been tested: http://singularityhub.com/2011/02/03/automated-car-convoys-pass-first-test-in-sweden-video/

Well sure if you want to blow the debate out of proportion then by all means we should all become cyborgs lol.

I'm talking about automated cars though, don't know what your talking about lol.

Hello software enforced speed limits.

Firstly, speeding to save that extra 60-120 seconds isn't worth your life.

Secondly, if 75% of the cars on the road have predictable driving patterns, then we would be able to develop more efficient traffic systems.

Honestly what did anyone expect on a computer forum? Of course everyone here is going to be all "computer all the things!"


Personally I enjoy driving even at legal limits and I don't know what I would do if I couldn't do it anymore.

I can't see this happening, computers can't anticipate something to happen like human beings. They developed some prototype but a human driver is way better because he has reflex and can anticipate actions. It could work, but they would have to replace every car for this to be remotely safe. Otherwise, those automated cars will crash.

Would you trust your life to a MACHINE?

I sure as hell would not......especially if it is Windows-based. LOL!

It's true that we use computers in missiles, airplanes, medical equipment, etc. However, a virus infecting any of those systems would not be as disastrous on a massive scale. Think about it - if most of the people in the country are using these automated vehicles (which are bound to be standardized) and someone manages to infect all of them with a computer virus that causes them to intentionally crash... it's game over.

Automated cars would be awesome and would bring a lot of benefits... but there's always going to be that guy who wants to infect them with a virus and kill everyone (call me pessimistic if you want). As we've seen recently, a lot of companies (even security companies) haven't been able to protect themselves very well from even small organizations or individuals. If a foreign government wanted to create a virus, it would be even more sophisticated (take Stuxnet for example).

Usually most people freak out and wreck at full speed, killing themselves and others. A smart car would be able to predict (yes same thing as anticipate) there is a wreck up ahead through calculating the speed of approaching objects. Which would flag the system to decelerate, to keep the passengers safe. The car will essentially know all aspects of driving in a fraction of a second, something humans aren't capable of. In turn would lead to faster reaction time by the car to avoid accidents. A head on collision at 20MPH is no where near as bad as 30MPH. That difference in speed can be alleviated by sheer computer control.
