With the radical new developments in robotic and
computing technology we finally have the opportunity to
create a car that aids drivers ability to be fully engaged
and to drive safely at all times.
Anti-autonomy Technology is a suite of systems all
designed to ensure maximum driver attention.
cameras use sophisticated photo analysis software to
monitor all aspects of the drivers performance and at
first sign of wavering attention or potential distraction,
the system can induce surprise movements of the
unsuspected noises or vibrations, shut off or turn on
accessories at the most attention grabbing moments.
This new approach to driver safety ensures that all
are wholly focused on driving at every moment they are
behind the wheel.
Finally technology achieves a truly safe driving

Preying on autonomous cars

||the Tesla autopilot (the auto-steer version) forces you to put
hands on the wheel every minute or so
||Sorta hoping it was an autonomous car that drove around, giving other autonomous cars a hard time.
||I thought this was already being done with a wee camera that watches your eye movements and makes a beep noise when you start to nod off.
||What [FT] said; the "top carnivore" amongst the herd of regular autonomous cars. Think "Predator" on four wheels ...
||Attention payments. Got it.

||If autonomous cars do ever become widespread, there will be
opportunities for aftermarket software. For instance, if you
can rely on all the other vehicles to stop when you pull out in
front of them... I foresee a softwar.
