Driving with cruise control is a pretty nice luxury. The added bonus of not having to worry about using your feet to adjust the speed is pretty gratifying, but what if you could forget about using the gas and break altogether? The masterminds behind
are looking to make this a reality.
Reportedly, Sentience will analyze the best route for you to get from point A to point B, and will then take care of all needed acceleration and breaking for the plotted trip. This will be done through GPS and mapping data that will recognize roundabouts, speed bumps, corners, and yes, speed limits.
What’s more, is that it’s being claimed that this system will save 5-24 percent of fuel on a trip, and could be available as early as 2012.
