      Yeah, same here. I'd love to do some rigorous testing on it, I've been eagerly awaiting the autonomic revolution which is coming our way.

      The lidar in the lower grill, what happens when it gets covered in snow/ice. The side view cameras, what happens when they get dirty or covered in salt spray/ice/snow??? If it's going to be fully autonomous, it has to be able to due so in different weather situations.

      It is not an all-weather machine, guaranteed. Do your own driving or stay home in bad weather.

      It's not going to be fully autonomous. It's aiming to be a level 3 HAV. For more info on the SAE's scale of autonomy, see: http://jalopnik.com/governments-self...r-c-1786866789
