But that's the thing: checking what the car predicts takes just as long as tapping the stalk in the direction I want to go.
- The car predicts with direction it should go, so, if you agree, all you need to do it tap the brake than hit the accelerator to be on your way
In another life I did UI design, and one of the golden rules was to make the behavior of the system predictable where possible, so humans can develop "motor memory". If I have an imperfect system making predictions, it is no longer predictable. And after 3 years of owning this car I wouldn't trust it not to miss a pole in front of the car or something. And if it makes the wrong prediction, correcting it via the screen is much more cumbersome than what we have now.
Does anybody know how it behaves if you have obstacles both in front and behind, e.g. when you're parallel parked?
