Watch Hyundai’s Stunt Driver Put His Life in the Hands of Auto-Braking

You might have heard about driverless cars, and I don’t blame you for not being quite ready to hop into one just yet.  One alternative that’s been catching on, however, is highly advanced safety features – so advanced that they are indeed capable of keeping you safe on the road when you fail to do so yourself.

Hyundai’s Genesis Sedan is one example of a car carrying this kind of technology, namely with it’s lane keeping assist system and emergency brake override.  This car actually won the IIHS top safety pick for 2015, but they still felt the need to prove it’s capability by driving them one by one by one by one by one (that’s 5 cars in a row) without a single foot on the pedal.  One particular driver decided to stay in his car (the others had jumped out) as all 5 slammed on the brakes behind him when a sudden stop was needed; check it out:
