Car horns offer the most complex challenges for driverless car developers. The Trudeau government has given Ford over $200 Million to bring their problems to Canada.

Trudeau gives Ford 200 million for driverless cars
Whether you call them self driving, Autonomous or driverless cars they still need a working horn. How else could you pick up your date – oh ya text him from the curb.

The use of car horns includes safety and cultural situations. This makes it challenging for car designers. They have to differentiate between a person texting through a green light, telling someone they cut you off, and admiring long legs in a short skirt.

Each of these requires split second timing and the right tone, volume and cadence to have proper effect. It has to change to the situation and personality of the car occupants. ¬†Imaging following a funeral procession and your car keeps honking, or a wedding procession where it won’t.

Honking at a green light depends who is in the car. It can range from a quick beep saying “Sorry – you didn’t notice but the light changed” to a long, loud “Hey @$$hole they light changed an hour ago drop the phone and get going before I ram my chrome horn right up your…….” Like automatic seat belts and talking cars of the past, if it is annoying people won’t buy the cars.

So the Trudeau government has given ford $200 million to develop solve their horn issues in Canada.

Ford also wanted money to solve the snow problem – if you don’t clean off your car the sensors won’t work. Maybe roof heaters are coming.
