VW Auto Pilot: Self-driving system in the works!

VW Auto Pilot

Volkswagen is working on a new feature called Auto Pilot which will be a self-driving system for your car. Have a look!

The German automaker is working on a system called Temporary Auto Pilot (TAP) which can semi-automatically drive a car on its own under limited conditions.

TAP works by combining other functions like ACC adaptive cruise control and Lane Assist (which helps keep the car within a lane) into an integrated system. Always monitored by the driver, and always leaving her/him the ability to override the system when needed, TAP can drive a car ‘semi-automatically’ at speeds of up to 130 km/h (81 mph) on a highway.
