Hyundai Car Convoy Goes Driverless

by Paul Strauss

In one of the more daring demonstrations of automotive automation, Hyundai put together a convoy of its new 2015 Genesis sedans and let them drive down the road without drivers in them. A team of stuntmen and stuntwomen started off driving the cars, and then escaped through the sunroofs, leaving the cars to drive on their own, following a single lead driver. But even he was just a passenger, as he was blindfolded and had his hands off the wheel and feet off the pedals. Eventually a truck at the front of the convoy slams on its brakes, and all of the Hyundais safely follow suit.

It’s a compelling demonstration of the vehicle’s Advanced Smart Cruise Control, Lane Keeping Assist and Auto Emergency Braking features, and a tiny glimpse at what roads might be like as cars offer more and more autonomous driving features.
