Re: Safety is Phase One

DrFPGA, I agree. But what's muddying the water in the autonomous car discussions is the fast progression (and adoption) of today's advanced driver assitance systems (ADAS) introduced in luxury cars.

Further improvements we are seeing in the ADAS makes us all realize that ultimate "autonomous car" scenario is not exactly the stuff of science fiction.  

Of course, there is a big gap between ADAS and self-driving cars. And yet, there are also a lot of overlaps between ADAS features and technologies enabling autonomous cars.

Safety is Phase One
DrFPGA   9/17/2013 5:04:37 PM
Seems like the argument being made is that autonomy isn't possible until safety with an actual driver is dramatically improved. Once there are fewer accidents then autonomy could be considered and implemented. Sounds like a good strategy to me, but proving out 'just' crash avoidance features sounds like a very, long process. I don't expect to see autonomy for a very, very long time...

@Max, ha ha, that is true. I am also doing exactly that with this piece...

@Junko: For every story, there are always two sides to the argument.

The problem is that I'm usually arguing on both sides :-)

Pro-V2X argument
junko.yoshida   9/17/2013 1:49:57 PM
This is supposed to be a counter argument to another V2X story I posted last week: "If a Car's Really Autnomous, Why V2X?"

For every story, there are always two sides to the argument. I wanted to explore the topic further in this new article.

Let the debate begin.
