Testing is happening on public roads, but the everyday driving issues we all face aren’t the biggest challenge. Instead, it’s the worst case scenarios that pose a problem for engineers to decipher. Toyota plans to test out […]
Although the exact features vary and the trademarked names the automakers give autonomous technology differ, they do have something in common. All of them require a driver in the driver’s seat to take over if something goes wrong. Looks like one guy in the U.K. missed that last part.
