Next Audi A8 will drive itself in traffic jams


Audi has announced plans to introduce a new system named "Traffic Jam Assistant" for the next flagship model (A8). Once the driver switches it on in stop-and-go traffic, the vehicle will take over complete control of the steering, brakes, and acceleration up to 37 mph. Using front-mounted adaptive cruise control sensors and wide-angle video cameras the system can monitor lane markings, other vehicles, barriers and pedestrians. Eight ultrasonic sensors manage and monitor distance from the front, sides, and rear.

Audi expects to have this out to the market sometime next year 2013 in the next A8.
