I saw this video today on Youtube and just had to share it.
Powerful message, and it makes you REALLY think about what you are doing with your life…
I am doing Scaleogy for this exact reason.
It makes you really think about what you are doing in your life and why. Why are you doing the job you do, why are you doing what you do for your business? What direction are you going in your life.
This is from Alan Watts: He was an English philosopher, writer and speaker. He wrote more than 25 books and numerous articles on subjects such as personal identity, the true nature of reality, higher consciousness, meaning of life, concepts and images of God and the non-material pursuit of happiness.
The automotive industry is changing and developing quicker than ever, with the rapid growth of hybrid vehicles and super cars breaking records almost daily, it’s a very exciting time for Audi to release their ‘piloted drive’ concept.
Audi as a brand has come on leaps and bounds in the last 10-15 years and has now very much secured its name as a prestigious brand in the automotive sector. Taking the extra step with their technology, they are now setting out to fundamentally change the way we operate our cars. They hope to improve the way we use our cars with efforts focussed on the intelligence of the technology and the decisions of the driver.
The way Audi sees driving is that the driver only gets enjoyment out of being able to actually drive the car, it becomes a chore when weaving in and out of heavy traffic and constantly stopping and starting in rush hour traffic. Making decisions can be tiring and often a chore for the driver, so with that in mine they have decided that a step in the right direction for technology would be to hand over responsibility for the mundane tasks involved with driving.
In their eyes, an autopilot, much like one that works at 10,000 meters in commercial jets would make the driving experience better, less tiring and ultimately safer for the driver and passengers travelling in their cars. Drivers can get bored and tired and with human tiredness comes human error so Audis ‘piloted drive’ system is aimed to make our roads safer for everyone.
Audi have been performing tests for a full 15 years at various locations, including race tracks which are the toughest test labs. They have been testing everything from adaptive cruise control to active lane assistance and have proven that they work in mass production. In fact, in the USA, Audi was the first and is still the only car manufacturer to have carried out test drives in real life conditions, and it’s been a huge success. The potential of this technology is vast and it has been proven to work multiple times over.
Check out the promotional video below, where three times Le Mans winner Rinaldo Capello goes up against an RS7 with the piloted drive system.
