“SELF-DRIVING VEHICLES ” by PATRICK STEVENS, GATEWAY TECHNICAL COLLEGE will be held at 2 p.m. Monday November 19 in the UW-Parkside Student Center, 900 Wood Road.
WILL THERE STILL BE BACK-SEAT DRIVERS IN SELF-DRIVING CARS?
We’re back to technology again exploring the rapidly developing move to autonomous vehicles that will drive themselves. Does this sound like science fiction (remember the personal jet packs we were all going to have?) or does it sound like a way for seniors to maintain their independence after inability to drive.
Cars already can park themselves, stop when the driver does not do so quickly enough, use autonomous cruise control to maintain a prescribed distance behind the car in front of it, and turn off the engine to save fuel while waiting for a long train.
Patrick Steven is an instructor in Automotive Technology at Gateway Technical College
