    My car is self driving.
    I get in and half hour later I think shit howíd I get here??
    I canít remember that journey.

    Sounds scary but that has actually happened to me once :O
    i drove from Exeter to Bristol up the m5 at 7am and didnít realise I was at work until I pulled up and then shat myself as I couldnít recall any of the journey.

    That tech is an evolution of stuff that's been around since the late 90's. Mercedes W220 S Class with Distronic (1998?) and BMW E38 7 series with Active Cruise Control (2000?) I believe was when this tech was first released in production road cars.
