Re: car to phone?
I think all of this car technology is about slowly removing the driver from the equation. We can't do that right away, because there needs to be an era of transtion.

But I do think that removing drivers will create safer roadways. Driving is dangerous. It can also be fun, but I think most people tired of the day-to-day toll of doing so.

That's going to change with technology, and robotics is all a part of that.

car to phone?

Couldn't the car (if not the driver) communiate directly with the pedestrian by honking? All these smart products are making us dumb.
