I could understand if they just made computer mods void the warranty, but other than that, this doesn't have legs.
Napa, autozone, etc will lobby against this for us
SEMA should jump into action any minute
So I will have to pay the dealer the $50 labor they wanted to replace the cabin air filter on the civic. A job that takes 30 seconds to do. Can't change my own brakes or replace a burnt out taillight.
Yeah, i'm sure every single tire manufacturer has something to say about it to.
But what happens when those dirty home mechanics start downloading tires! Oh wait, maybe that isn't right.
or 3d printing them @awptickes
They need to protect their intellectual property. I get it. But they're throwing a bucket of water on lit match here. If I can't work on a new car, I won't buy it.
The MOST USED software in the world are ones that have API's for 3rd parties to interact with them and prototype.extend them. And the simple reason is that it allows the users to do what they want with it once a core is established.
the LEAST USED software are those that are locked down.
It's already been done.
I know it has. i meant, think as in, "use as a reference for this case" not, think "here's something that's possible". lol
am i the only one that thinks that brakes should in now way be operated by the computer?
seriously. of all things, thats one thing that should be mainly manually operated. abs is fine, bc even if that goes out, you still have brakes. but knowing that a simple electrical complication could cause no brakes is just not ok. especially in states that still allow resale of flood vehicles, just seems like a bad idea.
In theory it's no less safe than drive by wire steering....
I personally don't think anything that could potentially cause you to get in an accident should be electronic like brakes or steering. I'm not even comfortable with an electronically controlled automatic transmission. Although unlikely, one short or malfunction in a switch or the TCU causing you to go from drive to park going 70mph down the interstate doesn't sound fun.
yet, lines full of hydrolic fluid that go bad don't scare you?
cuz, i lost the brakes in my truck due to a line bust, and let me tell you, that was fucking scary.
Things of all kinds can and will break. mechanical or digital.
Electric PS brakes trans and throttle is car companies just getting ready to build cars that drive themselves. I believe that the "trial period" if you will, is taking place now to test reliability and such of said systems. :foilhat:
Not much tinfoil needed for that theory. It is going to happen. And honestly I don't think self driving is going to necessarily take over driveways in the near future. But you won't need to own a car in the city once Google/Elon come out with their systems. You will just dial up a car and it will drive you wherever you would like to go then drive itself back to a garage.
I heard all manufactures are working on a self driving car. Our car hobby is coming to an end soon. Watch human driven cars be outlawed.
fixed that for you.
