Video: Stuntmen put Hyundai's driverless car emergency stop to the ultimate test

Published 24/07/2014

Tests of Hyundai Genesis cars were carried out at the Mojave Desert. Five stuntmen drove round the track at speeds of 50mph (80km/h). They then switched on the smart cruise control and lane assist, which allowed the cars to drive the 6.4-mile (10.3km) circuit unaided. At this point four of the stuntmen jumped out of their cars into a truck. The lead driver stayed in position with a blindfold and relied on the technology to save his life
