MIT’s Semi-Autonomous Car Balances Human, Computer Control | Autopia | Wired.com
There are autonomous cars, and there are drivers’ cars. Now we have something in the middle. Sterling Anderson and Karl Iagnemma of MIT have created a semi-autonomous driving system that gives drivers full control of the vehicle, but kicks when the car gets too close to another object. This sounds like the adaptive cruise control found in expensive Mercedes-Benzes, but this software is much more nuanced and ambitious than anything on the road.
