The autonomous Ioniq

So at first I really hated the idea of self driving cars. Too many variables not only in the act of driving but when it came to insurance and accidents etc. I still followed what was being reported the good and the bad but until I watched this video of the Chevy Bolt driving in the San Francisco area I was really skeptical. After watching the video I was pretty impressed with the self driving technology. I of course looked for Ioniq video footage but there is nothing earth shattering out there for the Ioniq yet. What impresses me about this video is the technology not the car the technology is in. I would like to ride in a self driving car now and see how the transition from stop to start is when the radar tells the car there is a hazard like a pedestrian or how it merges into another lane when there are materials in the road. The video speed is too high to see if this is a smooth or bumping transition

There are a few like this video with the Ioniq but the route is not as busy with multi and varied things happening like it does in the Bolt video I posted above and not as long as a drive either

I have always found the idea of the self-driven car fascinating. Autonomous Hyundai IONIQ car sounds very appealing to me. I would love to see some personal experiences on that ;) .

An interesting perspective was brought to my attention about self driving vehicles recently. We can read a lot of articles on how the self driving vehicle will change cities. We have excellent videos of the autonomous cars progress and have more of a tangible understanding of how self driving vehicles could one day take over the world:) During rush hours or busy hours what happens when a self driving car is trying to take a left. The amount of pedestrians will surely stop it from doing so. Go into any major city during the rush hours and a massive amount of pedestrians cross the street continually. Do the self driving vehicles have software to know when they can turn? I think it might lead to the self driving car waiting endlessly to take a left . How about during large sporting events ... same scenerio hundreds maybe even thousands of fans pilling into the streets before and after the game - what will the self driving car do? I predict nothing - wait until there are no hazards.. Just a thought ;)
