Comment: Automatic Stop-and-start? How is that better? (Score 1) 388

I just watched the video, and it seems they're talking about having a car just hit the gas and brakes for you to simulate YOU driving in stop-and-go traffic. But, uh, isn't the point to do it better than a human?

Wouldn't the software be able to calculate the average rate of speed and just putter ahead at a constant rate instead of accelerating and braking like people do in rush hour traffic?

I can't tell if the video example is bad, or if they're actually suggesting making software that drives your car as poorly as you do.

The Force is what holds everything together. It has its dark side, and it has its light side. It's sort of like cosmic duct tape.

Working...
