Science/Tech Conjecture: PhantomPilot


While engaged in an incident where drivers must take their eyes off of the road, the car would be able to drive itself for a brief period of time while the driver takes care of whatever business is taking their attention from the road. It would borrow autonomous vehicle technology, without making the car fully self-driving. There could be some sort of alert that would show other drivers on the road that the car is currently driving itself, so that they could put some distance between each other if they are uncomfortable being near them. Since the technology is only intended for emergencies, there could be a time limit on how much is able to be used for it daily so that users do not abuse this feature.
