This is the wave of the future now: the computer, cameras, radar, and GPS monitor the lanes of the highway, keep you in the center of the lane and allow the driver to be freed up to better monitor other cars.
This type of active preventative safety will prevent many tragic collisions. If the AutoPilot does not have enough information to “drive” the car it will ask the driver to take the wheel. If the driver does not take the wheel it will slow down, pull over, stop, and put on the four way flashers.
