    I take it ships don't have any way of logging the course they actually took as opposed to the one they were supposed to take?

    I'd imagine they do, at the very least something like some sort of black box recorder as on planes. It's probably quite telling though if nobody ever reviewed any of the past "logs" when he was alledgely showing off and indentified this as an issue. It's all too similar to the way a lot of corporate entities will log all the accesses to their computer systems but don't necessarily put much emphasis on reviewing that data until it's all just a bit too late.

    After your car has warned you that you are about to hit something, does it automatically apply the brakes?

    Some of the newer models actually do. I'm not sure if there are any which will override the drivers final decision, but that's probably not a great idea anyway.
