Video won't display in Mozilla Firefox.

 

This video shows two video clips (one right after the other) to show how people merge, either manually, or using the cooperative adaptive cruise control (CACC) automation, into a line of other cars on the highway.  The first clip shows a participant merging into a gap in the traffic, with the assistance of the CACC merging automation. The second video shows a participant merging into a gap manually (without CACC). The gaps between the cars are short making merging difficult.
