Can Pulse and Glide be Automated

Has anyone ever attempted to make a controller that can automate pulse and glide? I think by taking human error out of it and making it consistent, the mileage would go up.

Any repetative action a driver imputs inot a vehicle can be automated like a cruise control. The problem would be similar to the issue with cruise control, it can not anticipate grade changes and traffic situations like a human mind.

If these were not issues the sure it is possible.
