Audi A8: Next generation coming with autonomous driving system

Audi A8

Street word has it that the next-generation Audi A8 will come with an autonomous driving system in 2016.

Auto Motor und Sport says the model will incorporate some of autonomous driving systems that were recently shown off at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. While the futuristic self-parking system isn’t expected to make the cut, their piloted driving system is.
As we have previously reported, the system uses two radar sensors, eight ultrasonic sensors and a wide-angle video camera to fully drive the car for a “limited period of time.” The system was designed to make traffic jams less stressful by taking control of the steering, acceleration and braking at speeds up to 60 km/h (37 mph).
