This can be a weird feeling if you are not accustomed to it

One of my jobs when i worked for the State of California, was to help with testing vehicle operation in conjunction with the California Highway Patrol & automotive manufacturers.
It was very interesting to say the least, we had 3 days of testing with the ABS systems

at a later time, we did about a month of testing with driver less vehicles
I drove several different size trucks that were obstacles, i didn't have gear that the cars had, just normal trucks, mostly 10 wheelers

Wow, thanks for that video, GT! My only concern with the self driving car is since the computer in back is running Windows, it might a new meaning to the dreaded "Blue Screen of Death"!
