  1. Ola Benderius:

    Now we can know what the driver will do before they have done it. You can look 0.4 seconds into the future. That is very good because we can compensate for that, for instance, in an anti-skid system, if you know, for example, that the driver will pull the steering wheel 80 degrees to the left, you can pull a little more on the right side to compensate. You can compensate for the driver because the driver doesn’t really know how the wheels are aligned, but the system can measure them.
