Technology to Force you to Pay Attention!

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. Onboard cameras use sophisticated photo analysis software to monitor all aspects of the drivers performance and at the first sign of wavering attention or potential distraction, the system can induce surprise movements of the vehicle, 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 drivers are wholly focused on driving at every moment they are behind the wheel.

Finally technology achieves a truly safe driving experience!

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 ...

Definitely the former.

// "top carnivore" //

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.
