I have read the comments on the original article appearing in Design News. Many of the apprehensions are worth looking at by the designers and if they take all this criticism positively then we will defintely have a viable and road worthy version of autonomous cars on the road in the next couple of years.
Whatever may be the flaws in its autonomous decision making process, I think these autonomous cars will be driven much more safely than those drunk drivers !
So at least when are retruning for a late night party, better hand over control to the auto pilot of your car than take the rosk of hitting somebody or get caught by the traffic cops !
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.
