Hi Crusty.  The old saying applies.....

To err is human

To really stuff things up takes a computer......

My worry is that my car at the present moment nags me about all the thnigs I have done or not done.

With the self driving car I can see the point at which the on board computer says in a Hall like voice "I have decide that you no longer desreve me" and pushes me out the door at the legal speed limit.

Will the self drive car be suitable for driver training? Police persuit? Villans?

As a caravan tower, will the self drive car be able to compensate for a trailer twice the length of the car?

It's going to be an interesting ride.

My concern isn't so much with the self driving car just off the assembly line, but what about 6 months plus down the road when a sensor fails in such a way that the system cannot detect it?  Let's face it, when something as simple as an ignition switch, floor mat or gas pedal can cause a failure and recall, what makes anyone think that a self driving car will not need a weekly or at least monthly inspection?

Self Driving Car - Driver's Test

I'd love to know how a self driving car performs from the viewpoint of a Registry of Motor Vehicles driver's license tester. If the route were mapped out in advance, what comments and grade would the instructor give and why? If a human pretended to be driving, how would the instructor grade them?

Self Driving car

I recently encountered a google self driving car with two passengers, one in the drivers seat of course. It took all the self control I could muster to not get in front of it and slam on my brakes!  I do wonder how well it would do. I would think that it should be possible to respond faster than a person. However, would the Google car recognize the devious look on my face as I pulled in front of it?
