I think it was pretty cool.arildno said:So what?
It is just another dumb car. BORING!
Lol, has anyone seen the Blues Brothers, how Elwood parks that old police cruiser. It's much the same as that link above, pretty funny.BobG said:
HEY!!! :grumpy: I need at least three car lengths of open curb to paralllel park. I failed parallel parking when I took my driving test, but I wore a short skirt.Moonbear said:It needs 2 ft of space on both ends...if you can't parallel park yourself in a space a full 4 ft longer than the car, you don't belong on the road.
So go European and get a small car?Cyclovenom said:Hahaha, the old short skirt trick, huh evo? :tongue2:
Well, i wouldn't mind if my automobile will park by itself, it's too big and sometimes i get tired of going back and forth to get out of the parking lot!.
I've heard this a lot, I really dont see why they dont make you, considering how hard it is to get good at. I guess they make you back in thats all. No more backing up for 20 feet and hitting the line equals a fail.moose said:^Genius. I laughed when I read that comment.
EDIT: I learned how to parallel park perfectly, and was damn good at it. Then come test day, they don't make me parallel park... wth?
But you have to hope the car behind you has the same equipment.Volumunox said:i'm more interested in the S.A.R.A system.
Short Range Automotive Radar Frequency Allocation
its a 24GHZ radar that detects everything in its path, stopping if there should be a chance of colliding with anything and that you wouldn't stop yourself.
Also braking much smoother then a normal person as it calculates the distance and speed.
Currently they're also working on a 79GHZ.
so now we just need the gps to guide the car around right ? :D
Especially when it brakes for the tree branch you would have chosen to run over rather than get rear-ended by the tractor trailer following too close. Sometimes it's safer to risk a bit of body damage to the car from something small than slam on the brakes and get hit by something bigger.edward said:But you have to hope the car behind you has the same equipment.
How many people look in the rear view when they are about to slam a tree?Moonbear said:Especially when it brakes for the tree branch you would have chosen to run over rather than get rear-ended by the tractor trailer following too close.
