Self Driving Car

 http://biertijd.com/mediaplayer/?itemid=39089

Audi has a video that shows a new car technology that allows a car to park itself.  The driver exits the vehicle and the car looks for a parking place and then goes and parks itself.  The car then returns to the drop off point to pick up the driver when she returns from shopping.

Self driving cars can cut down on traffic collisions.  I think the diamond lanes should be reserved for self driving cars rather than for low emission vehicles.  When the technology is mature everyone will want to drive a low emission vehicles and we don't need special lanes to encourage them.  Self driving cars will reduce traffic collisions and save lives.

I want a flying car.  Flying cars should have this type of technology so that we all don't have to become airplane pilots.  Flying cars would cut on congestion in urban areas.  Some places now have traffic so heavy that it's rush hour nearly all the time.  If we can operate military drones we should be able to operate flying cars; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
