The empty Hyundai convoy

How do you demonstrate the effectiveness of your driver assistance systems? If you’re Hyundai, you line up a convoy of six cars and get five of the drivers to jump out of the sunroof – onto a convenient truck – leaving the electronics in charge.

But, as scary as this empty car convoy might seem, it works, each following the one in front faithfully, round a corner and executing an emergency stop.

Autonomous cars aren’t the future. They’re already here. Just don’t try this at home. You haven’t got a convenient truck to land on.
