Autonomous / Driverless Cars

Recommended Posts

Level 4 car already. Autonomous lane changing included. This Renault is Level 4 vs Tesla Level 2 currently.

One interesting side effect seems to be over long distances the perception of distance travelled is massively underestimated, on its own a major plus for any driver.

Typical dozy French bastards.

That so-called autonomous car is no good for use on UK roads.

It's left-hand drive for fuck's sake....!

Perhaps the driverless car will fall victim to the kind of leapfrog tech that we see so often in this part of the world:

My instant thought was no but a lot will depend  on price - helicopters  - well expensive, based around drone tech should be very much cheaper and suitable for mass use. Wil most likely remain a niche part though.

i think looking over the years at accidents and driving standards, that we already have driverless cars out there and amongst us.

Thing about driverless tech is that every iteration, every software update, the tech should become incrementally better, that is such a strong characteristic that is inevitable that driverless will become more competent/reliable in its decision making than your average driver.

Logically, this should be the safety acceptance criterion for driverless cars; not that they should be absolutely safe, but that they should be safer than the average human driver.

We are a long way from even that yet.

What like Windows?

I'll await DriveSoft Vista with interest and trepidation!

:D One would hope that updates to driverless car software will be rolled out in a slightly better/safer way than new versions of Windows.

Perhaps they could beta test them in cities like Liverpool in order not to damage the economy too much? :ph34r:

Just shown this on Click. Uber driverless car kill, cyclist crossing road at night. Followed by passenger who was there if anything goes wrong. ( unfortunately watching stuff on her phone instead).

Not convinced a human driver would have done loads better based on that video. Wtf did the cyclist think they were doing? That said, I’d have expected an autonomous car to “see” in the dark better than a human, and it didn’t - or at least didn’t react.

You get in the other door, to avoid unnecessary anal accidents on the gear stick.

Even aliens from the future have pilots in their saucers, ie, as in Roswell. What does that tell you?:Old:

The driverless car. As likely as the paperless toilet. 

Paperless toilets quite common in Japan. Computerised things with an assortment of warm water and warm air jets.

And in Arabic countries, although no computer is involved.

My favourite thing about Japan - their toilets are a pleasure. I always leave as clean as a whistle.:D

The other innovation I like is the embarrassment button on public toilets. First time I sat down I thought 'oooh, I wonder what this does'. So I pressed it and was delighted to hear it plays a tune so your fellow pee and pooers can't hear your farts and plops.

What will they think of next?
