As cars become ever more automated, there’s less and less for us humans to do behind the wheel. Some time in the not-too-distant future, we’re told we won’t need to drive at all, meaning the steering wheel and pedals of today’s vehicles will no-longer be needed.
But what if you could still take control of your car in the moments you needed to, using your cellphone or tablet to manually control your autonomous car?
It may sound far fetched, but Ford has just obtained patents that pertain to just such a method of control. Is it far-fetched or serious? And does it stand a chance of ever becoming ‘a thing’?
