Technology's being created to make your driver seat vibrate when there's a car in your blind spots so you can be physically alerted without looking for a visual. It can even tell you where the vehicle is. Should help when on autopilot. Maybe this will help all those drivers who merge before looking! clap

Thanks for posting that article! I'd be curious to test drive a vehicle with that installed to see what it feels like.

For some reason I get the sense that if I was in very crowded slow moving traffic (like a backup highway or crowded New York street) the seat would just be pushing on me constantly from all sides.

I think for city driving it wouldn't be as helpful but if you do a lot of highway driving, especially at night, that might be good. I know I zone out when I have long drives.

What would be MORE helpful is for it to detect animals (or people) approaching the road and alert me of those. They tend to jump out at me more than other cars.

Technology intending to replace human awareness scares me. Technology is great, when it works. Some things just shouldn't be replaced with artificial intelligence, and in my opinion, paying attention to your surroundings while driving 1000+ lb machine 70 mph down a highway is at the top of the list.
