Do you love that sensation of suddenly being hurled forward when you have to abruptly slam on the brakes? If you’re in a self-driving car, the effect’s apparently even more dramatic, researchers from the University of Michigan announced Thursday. People have a tendency to jolt forward as much as 8 inches when the vehicle abruptly slams on the brakes, according to the Detroit Free Press, and that amount of movement presents a number of implications for automakers developing automated technology like emergency braking.
