CNN reports that General Motors’ self-driving division, Cruise Automation, has released a new autonomous vehicle that has no steering wheel or any other manual controls. The plan is for the Chevy Bolt to get the design mod first.
So far, all self-driving cars presented by major companies have all included manual controls, but Cruise has said there is no need for an accelerator, brake pedals, or steering wheel in their vehicles. Multiple screens throughout the car will allow the passengers to communicate with it -- all driving will be verbal.
How about straight jackets attached to the seats and no windows -- let's take all control away from the driver.
Anyway, good luck with the early models -- it's sure to have a few bugs that'll kill a few early adapters.
