An Intelligent car is a smart vehicle, and a smart vehicle, an Intelligent car.

Merged[edit]

Per phrase above, and discussion at Smart car, this article has been merged into Smart car. WVhybrid 04:54, 9 October 2006 (UTC)

proposed renaming[edit]

this article spends much more time discussing the technology involved rather than the car itself. I propose that the article be renamed to "Vehicle Automation" and should make a passing mention that cars employing this technology can be labeled "smart" or "intelligent".Owen214 (talk) 09:17, 11 October 2011 (UTC)

well, since nobody seems to mind, I've moved it.Owen214 (talk) 10:13, 17 October 2011 (UTC)
It shouldn't be capitalised. Minor issue and easily fixed, I'll move it. --Xaliqen (talk) 08:57, 19 June 2012 (UTC)

Replacing drivers[edit]

I've removed the comment that vehicle automation has "relieved the driver of a portion of the decision-making necessary while driving". It seems to be a symptom of the "robots replacing humans" mentality. Technologies such as ABS and traction control perform tasks that humans couldn't really do before, so it's misleading to say that it relieves the driver. Owen214 (talk) 13:29, 21 November 2012 (UTC)
