Malaysia Developing Driverless Car Capable Of Tailgating, Using Emergency Lanes
CYBERJAYA: Today local technology startup Hia Today Bhd announced its new autonomous driver upgrade was intelligent enough to change lanes without indicating, run red lights, tailgate on freeways, and take advantage of empty emergency lanes in traffic jams.
“The No-Gai Model S utilises a patented Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology which allows the self driving car to ‘learn’ from human motorists driving on our roads.” explained product manager, Justin Wong.
“While testing the No-Gai in rush hour thunderstorms the unit instinctively sped up, activated its hazard lights, then followed several other motorists up the quicker NKVE emergency lane!”
“These autonomous cars will also learn how to double or triple park like real Malaysians do,” Wong continued, “should the unit become self-aware of being installed in a luxury vehicle, it may take two parking spaces or a handicapped spot so it won’t get scratched.”
