ひとうごかないときは、自動じどう運転うんてんわります。クラクションのおとらしたり、ハザードランプをつけたりしてまわりのくるまひと異常いじょうらせます。高速道路こうそくどうろでははしまって、それ以外いがい道路どうろではゆっくりまります。マツダはこのシステムくるま来年らいねんから計画けいかくです。

マツダは「運転うんてんしているひと具合ぐあいわるくなってもくるまひとたすます。安心あんしんできるくるまつくりたいです」とはなしています。

このような技術ぎじゅつはホンダや日野自動車ひのじどうしゃなどほかの会社かいしゃつくはじめています。

My thought

As I am getting older, it worries me a bit of driving. Not only my side but other drivers also might suddenly become unwell. Anything can happen on roads. This kind of system assure us with knowing that a car we are driving can help us. I can not wait for driving this sort of cars.
