German Automaker testing new driving systems

Audi - BMW - Mercedes Benz and Opel.

Opel is developing a system which you would not need to hold the steering wheel while driving. This system has a couple of cameras mounted in the front grille which sends the image to a computer system in the trunk. The computer tell the cruise control exactly where there is a trun or a car pulling out. The system will brake if needed and/or turn. You can even drive and read the newspaper in bumper to bumper traffic. The system knows the distance between the cars.

Mercedes Benz is developing a system which prevents accident. The system has a couple of cameras mounted in front behind the grill and one sensor which scans the direction where you are looking. For expample a bike cross in front which you did not see, the system will collect the data and the amount of feet in distance and the car will brake automaticaly.

BMW has develop a system which allows you to overtake or switch lanes safely.
If there is a car on the other lane, the system will advise you that there is another car. This system is already being used in big trucks such as MAN - DAF - SCANIA - IVECO and MERCEDES BENZ. BMW beleives that this system will reduce accidents on European highways.

i think its impossible unless satelites controled the computer on where roads are. Cameras can be covered and bumped cuasing bad feeds to the computers so doesn't seem so safe
