Sam Abuelsamid ... The Same as Usual

Episode 1658 (21:35)

Sam Abuelsamid

Sam joins Leo to talk about CES and what we can expect to see with car technology. Automakers and suppliers have been coming to CES since 2007 when Ford Sync was announced during the Microsoft Keynote. Then GM did a Keynote the year after. 

In another news, for the third time in a week, a Tesla was involved in an auto accident, because the drivers thought the Teslas were self-driving, rather than just with autopilot engaged.  Two of them ran through red lights and hit other cars. Tesla has pushed out an update recently that promises to detect red lights or stop signs, but Sam says that there is no self-driving autonomous car on the market. Autopilot means the car is managing the drive, but you still have to have your hands on the wheel and pay attention to the road.
