Re: Road Safety
@mak63 – I think it's just a better way of travelling, now you get to spend the time you take to go to work in a much productive relaxed way. Now you could concentrate of much important things. Imagine someone spending about 2 hours to get to work and 4 hours a day just for transport.

Re: I want to be driven...
@jnskm – The best part of the story is you don't have to drive in traffic, you could just turn on the autopilot and relax. It just eases your mind and helps you relax.

Re: Road Safety
@SunitaT- The acceleration deceleration steering and the brakes are the most critical components that the autopilot system would need to have full control of.

Re: Road Safety
@SunitaT- Almost all vehicles both heavy and light vehicles could have these driving assistant features. We just need to be careful that no one could hack into these systems which could cause disaster.

Re: Road Safety
@tzubair- I wish this could prevent drink and drive accidents and accidents caused by dangerous driving. This will definitely cut down at least 50% of the accidents if implemented properly.

Re: Road Safety
"How about a goal of creating better drivers? Not just with technology, but also with education."

@mak63: I think that goes without saying. No matter how sophisticated the technology may be, there's no substittue to a better driver who knows and follows the rules. The technology is there as a back up option just in case the driver falters by mistake. Even the best of drivers can sometimes end up in situations beyond their control.

Re: Road Safety
"If autonomous systems are really going to help, then they must first get full independent control of the variables that are governing the car and passenger safety."

@SunitaT0: It may sound good in theory, but I doubt how many people will actually be comfortable and feel safe while sitting in a totally autonomous car with no human driver at all. It may become acceptable later on, but I feel people would be just a little reserved even though how good the technology may be at this time.

Re: Road Safety
@SachinEE "...But it is true in a fully automated driving grid, there would be zero accidents because cars would communicate with each other."

Yep, but where is the fun on that?
Perhaps we might need many more private racing clubs/tracks, to blow off some steam.

Re: Road Safety
@nasimson I don't know if the drivers have to start from zero, but I'm sure they need to correct what they do wrong. Perhaps it will be a good idea to send drivers to a class, those who get a ticket or an accident where they're at fault. That would be a good start.
"The benefit with cars is that the new model has all the leanings of the old model built in. "
We could say something similar applies to us. When a relationship between teacher and student (or mentor/disciple) exists, wouldn't you say?

Re: Road Safety
@Nasimson. Probably. Or make a software division and roll out software updates for the car just like a computer company. Or make a really good AI that learns from past mistakes. Only problem would be if it goes Rogue.
