Speed of automated vehicle
Earlier, I suggested a maximum speed of 30 kph for the automated vehicle. This is too conservative. It should be possible and quite safe to get the automated vehicle to drive at 50 km per hour. This will make the travelling more convenient.
Some people are worried about the safety of an automated vehicle, without human intervention. They do not have to worry. Our LRT operates automatically. Even planes are flown automatically, except for landing and takeoff. If needed, these functions can also be done automatically.
