Doesn't even have to be an externally caused wreck. Imagine what would happen if the lead truck had a blowout? Or one of the cars in the string?Powder Hound said:I can't wait for the public trials. For an example of what could happen, just watch the end of any Tour de France (or any other grand tour race) where there's a crash. Count the number of other bikes taken out, then figure out what will happen if anything happens to one of the cars, or the lead truck, in the train.
It would take just about one of these to make negative public reaction explode.
If I recall correctly that demo on San Diego's I-15 used metal studs in the roadway to provide position feedback.Kabin said:It's tough to pull off even with demos. I recall GM's demos in southern california in the mid 90's. It was with their own vehicles, radars, electronics, software, drivers and still the vehicles made contact. And that was benign open roads.
