OK so we may not be getting fully autonomous vehicles right now, but adaptive cruise control is my current favorite technology. I guess I'm late to the party because all this time our car has been just a box with wheels, engine and steering. However the new one (new to me Smile | :) ) has got a few more bells and whistles.

Driving in traffic (which is most of the time) is much more bearable now. Slowing down is still a bit rough at very low speeds, but it does a pretty good job of following whatever is in front. At first I thought it would completely fail to see motorcycles, but even scooters are identified accurately (I don't trust it enough yet to actually allow it to follow one for extended periods of time)

Does anyone here actually have a Tesla with autopilot? Or anyone testing Google's car?

Other options have been a bit disappointing though. Lane-departure warning beeps for no apparent reason and is generally a mere annoyance, but to be honest a couple of dealers said it will be like that. Collision mitigation either completely ignores the thing in front or beeps a mile away. One day I'm going to completely leave it alone and see if it actually stops as claimed. When I find a car-sized balloon, or tarpaulin or something similar set up.
