I agree with Frank. Great video. If you haven't watched it, take a minute. So, where did we learn to pump the brakes? I remember doing it on my first car (77 Pontiac Sunbird), but I don't remember when or why. (I also had to keep my foot on the gas and brake to keep it from stalling at red lights, but that's another story...)
Yeah, I didn't know about the pumping issue. I just assumed that it was the panic period of sudden acceleration that was causing problems. This is even more scary because even though I'm a fairly calm person, I could see my self falling victim in this scenario.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
