It's SOOOOO SLOOOOOW!

Also, there were no people or other moving cars in the video. Any one else notice the quick edits when it looked like it was going to hit something?

They have all the detection in option packages now. Front and rear collision detection/warning/prevention, pedestrian detection, night vision, lane departure warnings (lines!) etc.

But wrapping it all up into a package like this and accepting the liability for it.

If they keep coming up with all these self driving cars does that mean I won't be liable for an accident anymore because my Audi did not react fast enough ?
Can you still get a DUI ?

Your Audi can(would) react faster than you could ever hope too. And when cars are fully automated I'm sure the terms for DUI will have to be modified.

This is nothing but a concept that will never be implemented. Too many things can go wrong.

Either way props to Audi for their excellent R&D.

I have a more realistic option, and I don't care if anyone steals my idea anymore..
Outsource your driving to India, Mexico, even Indiana..
Someone sits in a cubicle, you grant them access to your car.. they drive it remotely using some computer monitors, and a desk mounted steering wheel, brake and gas pedal...
If you get drunk and need a ride home, pay $20, some dude in Bangalore drives your car back while you sleep in the driver's seat.. just hope that the internet doesn't lag too bad or cut out in the process.. (so.. the "audi", automated thing can help out for the few seconds here and there of internet issues)..

If he lags and you crash, he'll probably respawn in another car.

The only people I could see that would use this are the ones that are super loaded and don't give a sh1t about what could happen to the car once it drives off.
