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.
