Ford in­vis­i­ble driver trial

Irish Daily Mirror - - NEWS -

DRIV­ERS were dressed to look like car seats and ap­pear in­vis­i­ble in a trial of driver­less mo­tors. Ford was test­ing if sig­nals from a bar of lights on wind­screens could re­place hu­man ges­tures like hand waves or nods to other driv­ers. The US trial aimed to see “how so­ci­ety in gen­eral is go­ing to in­ter­act with these ve­hi­cles”. Tester Andy Schaudt said: “It’s awk­ward when some­body’s look­ing right at you. You’re behind this hood and they don’t see you.”
