yes canary, but no one died!
Canary 42, 15.56 Best Answer.
Not that you know of.
Ah, but would a computer have hit the button too early?
The issue was that the driver ought not have been watching TV streams but doing their job. No car is considered safe enough yet to be the responsible area. Give it time.
Seriously now TTT, I do share your concern. But the system was still under test so a manual backup was wisely implemented. It was the backup which was at fault, although there was possibly a case for claiming insufficient testing under less critical conditions before going public.
Yes the computer system failed but more importantly so did the fail safe human.

When all cars are auto bikes won't be allowed on the roads.
Ought not be now.

OG: it's supposed to be self driving, the "driver" was reading.
canary: So they are now killing people testing these death traps.
a human would have avoided this, the pedestrian would have survived.
A human was there though and it wasn’t avoided therefore the human is to blame here. With regards to death traps I think computers are going to turn out to be far better drivers than humans overall, the most dangerous phase will be whilst humans are still driving but even then driverless cars will be involved in less accidents as a percentage of them on the road.

the human was reading not driving.

So at fault.
Fully self driving cars will never happen.

Question Author
correct hoppy, they cant get software to make a cup of tea yet, HTF are they ever going to get it to drive a car!
I didn't say the car wasn't at fault. But the minder was also at fault.
Question Author
how? The minder didn't need to be there at all, the car is supposed to be autonomous why would it want a flawed human? Unless...

Sorry if you haven't grasped it yet. These are trials. There is a minder as back up.
