Audi introduces its semi-autonomous A8

Standard

The car takes care of acceleration, steering, braking and starting from a dead stop and does so without the driver having to pay attention up to 37 miles per hour. Audi notes that drivers, “can take their hands off the steering wheel permanently and, depending on the national laws, focus on a different activity that is supported by the car, such as watching the on-board TV.” The driver can’t completely check out though, if the car determines it can no longer safely drive on its own, the human will have to take over. That means no naps.
