A pair of studies by IIHS finds that drivers may be put at risk by mixed messages and mixed signals related to driver assist systems.
Autonomous driving technology is still in its early stages, so you can’t simply hop behind the wheel and read a book. Drivers must pay attention both to take over if something goes wrong and to do tasks the technology isn’t capable of doing on its own just yet. Tesla eliminated one of those tasks by […]
