Volkswagen Group Research’s quest to eradicate accidents altogether has given us a glimpse into the future of motoring – and we like it. The “Temporary Auto Pilot” (TAP) system, fitted to a Passat Estate, utilizes radar-, camera-, and ultrasonic-based sensors to maintain a safe distance to the car in front (at a speed pre-selected by the driver), reduce speeds before a bend, and keep your vehicle in the centre of its lane. Also impressive is the fact that it also observes speed limits and overtaking rules in its environment.
