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

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 e, mploying 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)

No information about autonomous ships?[edit]

Autonomous ships are now being developed by a few companies, but this article does not yet have any information about them: [1] Jarble (talk) 19:16, 30 August 2015 (UTC)

Good point. Why don't you add the latest information? Tjej (talk) 07:49, 1 September 2017 (UTC)

Passenger Shuttles, added. will warrant a separate page within the next twelve months?[edit]

I've added this section and put in a lot of the current information. There doesn't seem to be any other suitable page for it to go but it seems unbalanced on this page. Given the development, testing, trials and deployments underway (there are three highly active vendors, one about to start a trial and the last with a prototype), I think topic will warrant a separate page within the next twelve months.07:49, 1 September 2017 (UTC)
