CAR (UK) - - Tech -

Af­ter 130 min­utes, we re­turn to base, with 28 miles of range re­main­ing. I’ve touched the brake or ac­cel­er­a­tor eight times, on av­er­age about every 15 miles. And if I’d stayed in one lane with the steer­ing warn­ing and my habits dis­abled, I prob­a­bly could have lapped the M25 with­out touch­ing the wheel too. You just need your wits about you when other cars merge with your lane. And that’s why Level 3 au­ton­omy, when con­trol switches be­tween car and driver, will be the most haz­ardous era in the de­vel­op­ment of the driver­less car. But this was gen­er­ally stress-free, and I ate a sandwich at the wheel more safely than ever be­fore. In short, this car re­ally can cruise au­tonomously in lane.
