Modern cars can almost drive themselves. They really can. We thought we have seen it all with the Tesla Model S Autopilot, but now Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Ford, Audi and all other enter this game. The thing is that they are all making major leaps with technology. And to see just how fantastically close we are to fully autonomous driving, you have to watch this video. The tech of today is simply magnificent.
In this case, we have a 2018 Audi A8 driving in Germany and presenting the Slashgear Editor-In-Chief the tech marvels of its system.
Quite remarkable stuff indeed.
The system is rated at a Level 3 meaning that it can take care of driving in congested areas fully taking control in the traffic jam for example. Sure, working at speeds of up to 37 mph may not seem awesome, but that is really where one needs it.
The system can take care of the throttle, brake, and steering on its own. Now to make it all work, Audi had to devise a special system taking care of the driver. The system which is part of the AI Traffic Jam Pilot monitors driver behavior and if it figures out that the driver is sleepy or whatever, the system will alert them. If the driver stays sleepy for a longer period of time the system will stop the car altogether.
