Full self-driving

Filed under: Real — liyiwei @ 6:44 pm

I tested an electric car’s full self-driving today and found it impressive.

After entering the destination, the car planned the route and drove itself, including turning, signaling, changing and merging lanes, observing traffic lights and signs (stop, speed limit), and avoiding pedestrians and cyclists.
I can manually change the default behaviors by signaling and setting a different speed target, and the car will automatically change lanes and pass slower cars.

I haven’t tried auto-parking yet, given that I doubt if the car can figure out where I want to park and the orientation of the car.

The self driving capability could augment human sensors, motors, and cognition and thus make driving safer and more efficient barring moral hazards (e.g., encouraging drunk or distracted driving).
