I've been wondering about something, and the thread about highway lanes would have been a swell place to bring it up, if it hadn't wandered a bit off topic. So I'll make a new thread.
I agree with others that dedicating a lane or lanes to high speed automated use is a logical extension once there's a critical mass of autonomous vehicles. No brainer. But I think there's a bit of technology missing. Mere autonomy won't be enough to keep everyone safe when running high speed, close proximity, vehicle trains. The vehicles will need to communicate.
I wonder if anyone has heard anything about a car-to-car protocol in development?
