Driverless car Concept

I think Driverless car concept is something very unique for the Automotive industry. Several Driverless cars we can find these days. This is really good for the safety of the people or passengers. There will be no chance of distract driving or unconscious driving due to the use of Driverless car. Lexus is a very popular luxury car brand and its models are very expensive. Smart cars are also very much advanced due to the use of various application or technologies in them. Mercedes also lunching several expensive car models these days and some of its models are very popular right now. Mercedes Benz engine is quite efficient in terms of its performance. Mercedes engine and body repair is necessary for every Mercedes users for the good and efficient performance of the car itself.

For the first time, I saw a google self driving car on the way in to work. The engineering curiousity in me made me want to go in front of it and hit my brakes to see how it would respond... I resisted. But I did notice that when someone moved into the lane next to him, he slowed down a bit... I'd be curious to see the state diagram of their sensors, actions, etc...

How is a robotic vehicle that allows you to read your paper during the morning commute different from a bus? Seriously, I wonder if public transportation will get wiped out by, or get a boost from the advent of autonomous vehicles. There's so much one can do when the cars are interacting with each other and with some overall control---redirecting traffic around congestion, etc---but at which point in this integration a personal car begins to behave like an element of public transport?

I guess that's just the price you pay for the freedom to read the paper during your morning commute instead of actually "driving"... Same argument applies to speed limits. Presumably your "ethical" car won't let you speed, and would even report other violators complete with timestamped video for the courts. The way most people drive, it wouldn't be long before most of us would be required to drive under "ethical" robot control or pay ever-increasing traffic fines.

We must remember that Robots are just machines. I am not sure they will ever reach a point were ethics becomes part of their actions. We build robots to do a job. They will do that job within the parameters we set. A Robot will never be 100% safe under all conditioins. Defects and untested decision paths will always exist. Using a wrench as a hammer is not the fault of the wrench. Just my opinion.

Brian: what happens when robot is ethical and keeps safe distance from the previous car and many non-ethical humans cut in front of him? Kris
