Primitive Drive System.....PDS
Remember when they brought out ABS and power steering? Ever since those days they've been loading up vehicles with imperialistic titbits to apparently enhance the driving experience.
My wife recently had a loan car which was brand new, very nice! You didn't need to open it if you had the keys on you, it recognised the settings in the keys and adjusted the seats, the radio, the temperature etc to your individual requirements (after some considerable programming ....it's a car!) then after one minute of checking and adjusting it allowed you to start your journey (not much good if you're being attacked according to my wife!).
Driving down the road it selects the desired gear and will automatically stop and start to save fuel, its headlights moved in synchronisation with the steering and when it got dark they came on automatically.
If it rains the windscreen wiper -you get my point. You didn't have to do anything in this car except turn up and have a general idea as to where you wanted to go.
Vanana will be different, you need a key to get in and start her up, you put on your own seatbelt, it's the law we won't warn you. You don't have to check you're out of gear before you commence your journey as there's no gearbox, you will however have to release your own handbrake. If thats not primative enough, lights will be on switches and when it gets dark you depress the correct switch and the lights will illuminate the road ahead (assuming you haven't left it too late and are in a field). When it rains there's a switch for the wipers. If you want to reverse you have to look behind and figure it out yourself, we do like the camera idea though. As for getting from A - B we might be tempted to throw in a Collins road map (Old School not as primative as using the stars).
You brake on your own, you rotate the steering wheel on your own, you drive!
Sounds exciting doesn't it?
