I'm still not sold on this self driving. It worries me that drivers will get complacent and you know where that road leads to. Many drivers are already oblivious to everything around them. I'm a fan of these YT dash cam channels and I now have had a cam for about a year. Some of the things people do. Right turn from the left lane and a left from the right lane. Cutting people off. Stopping on on ramps not knowing how to merge and the list of insanity goes on and on and on. Now add in inattentive drivers on auto pilot? What could possibly go wrong?I let it drive itself for a while... that was pretty interesting. Ford approached driving automation incrementally. My Bronco Sport isn't quite a drive itself car but almost is. The F-150 will drive itself on the freeway system, but the driver has to keep their eyes on the road. If you try napping or reading a book or otherwise become distracted the car/truck will tell you to put your hands back on the steering wheel.
My truck is a Bighorn trim. It's a mid level trim but on the nicer side of mid level. It does have auto lane keep and will correct itself if I drift over the line as well as emergency collision avoidance braking front and rear. Those systems aren't perfect and they've caught me off guard a few times.
Once I was pulling out of my driveway and the neighbor had some leaves in the street at the curb for collection. As I got close my truck sensed them. I was just going to drive through them when my truck locked up my brakes. Caught me totally off guard. Thankfully I wasn't going that fast.
Another time I was backing out of a local pizzeria. It had an inclined parking lot. When I got to the bottom of the incline my rear sensors picked up the street and thought it was an object. Locked up my brakes again. I thought I hit something.
These systems are nice and they work very well but they aren't perfect.
