This is an "interesting"topic, but certainly not in a good way. A friend of mine is a cop and has been through the California Highway Patrol EVOC training. He's got a '13 GT M6. Last week while accelerating around a slow moving vehicle at about 40 mph his car went out of control and he ended up doing a 180, facing oncoming traffic.
This is what we're coming to:

"Smart-Braking Cars Save Fuel. March 24, 2009 -- Drivers willing to turn braking and acceleration over to a computer could save nearly 25 percent on their annual gas bills, say the British developers of an advanced new cruise control system.
Known as Sentience, the system uses GPS technology coupled with detailed topographical information to control the gas pedal and brakes. If alone on the road, all the driver has to do is steer.
"The car speeds up, slows down at speed humps, and stops at all the junctions without the driver having to intervene," said David Overton of Ordnance Survey, the U.K. government agency that provided the map information for the Sentience Project."
