Infiniti Q50, Driverless On The Autobahn

After writing about self-driving cars and the risks introduced by dangerous drivers this week, here's a timely demonstration of both.

In this case the car is the Infiniti Q50, which sports active lane control and cruise control, which allows - in the first part of the video - the driver to travel down the Autobahn with hands and feet off the controls. So far, so technically impressive.

In the second half of the video the driver vacates the driving seat and allows the Infiniti to continue the journey down the motorway completely autonomously.

Dangerous? Yep. Wildly reckless? Yep. Technical impressive, absolutely.

Infiniti need to add a driver seat sensor to it's controls in order to prevent this particular experiment being repeated. But as a demonstration of the advance of technology it's hugely impressive.
