The first reaction to a car that drives itself is often one of horror for the enthusiast. This particular feature in 4Car really highlights how such a scenario is not that bad. 4Car got to spend some time with a Honda Accord (our Acura TSX) that is equipped with Honda's new Advanced Driver Assist System. It is a combination of Adaptive Cruise Control and a new Lane Keeping Assist System. In essence this system will cruise at speed and assist in keeping the vehicle between the white lines. Now the system is designed so that the driver still has to pay attention, so it does not operate completely independent of the driver. It is also designed so that the driver's inputs are always a priority over what the system will provide. 4Car's initial impressions were very positive, and we can actually see where this kind of convenience would be helpful on long trips.
