Enjoy the last few years of human dominance. Only a matter of time before SkyNet gets a hold of this. Just kidding BTW.

It seems Tesla is already introducing the first step of autonomous driving with the new Model S P85D. Apparently the car also parks itself and comes back to you, but I'm not sure if it's going to be for this gen or the next.

I would be more impressed if it was the old Hockenheimring.

In my opinion, the human factor of the driver in racing is quite important. It wouldn't be so unpredictable, it would be just a team of engineers putting together something that could fail for technical reasons, but that probably would behave always in the same way. Race drivers hate or love each other, are funny or serious, follow the instructions or their guts, I think that is also part of the beauty. They suffer physically and emotionally, they have to stay focus and work hard to achieve that.

I love how the technique and different techniques are evolving and it'd be great to have an autonomous car for commuting, but racing is something else. It's interesting to see how different companies develop different solutions for the same thing though.

Have you seen what Daniel Simon has been up to lately? Just your usual super-duper-sickness from one of our generation's standout auto/SFX designers...

The novel part is that the software is 'racing' software - but no one knows yet if it will be a snoozefest or if audacious maneuvers will be attempted by the AI.
