    They are already starting that.

    All of our Army trucks are like that, too. Thing is, that's 10mph under the posted speed limit.

    The human should always have control of every aspect of the car.

    The car companies had better realize this and give back control to their drivers.
    it's almost certainly a done deal. we can't build enough roads to ease congestion right now; much less in the future. there is not enough public support for high speed rail. the solution is to run packs of cars close together, and to have a central system controlling the flow of traffic. i would be very surprised if we don't start moving towards this model.

    And the NSA is in the news almost daily for snooping into peoples computers. Hackers are routinely breaking into systems and stealing data. Viruses are routine on microsoft systems and can do anything from crippling them to only monitoring them. How many denial of service attacks have there been in the last decade? etc, etc.

    And people want to give control of driving to computers? Yeah, right. Not me.
    Only a fool measures equality by results and not opportunities.

    Along with that model will require the public to buy a new car and junk the older model.

    You can't have computer controlled cars on the same roads with human driven cars.

    It sounds like it is still a long way off.

    I remember back in the '90s it was being experimented with and we are now in 2014 and still nothing.

    A very good point: slow drivers. Will these speed controllers keep the car above the minimum speed limit too? Will the car detect traffic flow and keep the car at a relative speed?
