Didn't watch. What happens when the police pull over a self driving Tesla?

I would like to "hang out in the back seat" with the blonde chick. Does this make me a Luddite?

This is inevitable. The computing power and sensor capabilities are available. The software will be the key to make it safe.

It will take a few years for laws to be sorted out and then it will fast become standard equipment.

I donít see how it can work safely without all cars self driving. Have you ever driven in Louisiana?

Self driving cars will become a must in cities like Los Angeles. The only solution to the grind lock is for all cars to have a reserved spot in traffic.

*grid

The other solution is to avoid big cities.

I've been to Louisiana. And hundreds of other places. What will happen is all cars will end up being able to share their sensor and current conditions with others vars and work as a network while in range of other cars.

As I said most cars will have a self drive option with in a decade. It's inevitable.

People vastly overestimate the importance of human intelligence and perception when it comes to navigating the road - it can absolutely be completely replaced, and with improved results, by autonomous driving tech.

The argument that computers don't have the ability to "feel" the road like humans and see/anticipate what a driver might do is bunk. The computer, via sensory input (video, radar, etc.) may not see the driver in the other car nodding off, or getting angry, but it will see the 1st incremental move off-course their vehicle makes instantaneously and calculate all the probabilities/decide on safest course of action before you can blink.

Things like GPUs may not be on the level of the human brain overall, but unlike you and I the system is being designed for one task and one task only, and autonomous driving systems will blow the human brain out of the water for that single task they are designed to do.

Plus legitimate automakers are legitimately and responsibly working on this technology, and not using consumers and other motorists as crash test dummies like Tesla is. Their antics are giving the autonomous driving revolution a bad name.

I know a couple of guys currently working for GM in their autonomous driving development, and they tell me this is NOT a goal, in fact, the opposite is true. Having cars operating autonomously while connected to the internet, or some other network, opens up an opportunity for evil-doers to create tremendous havoc by hacking the system. While in development, the cars are connected to the internet, but the end goal is to have them logically isolated when operating on the road.

There was an accident in Houston this weekend. A Tesla wrecked and caught fire. 40,000 gallons of water to put it out and a phone call to Tesla for help. Two dead. One in the backseat, one in the passenger seat. The car was apparently driving itself. No driver.

I did not say they would connect to the internet. I do say that that cars will communicate with each other and share data in a near field group type of exchange.

I think license plates should be cell numbers.

It makes you an idiot, just like so many other members. You end up with a bitch of a wife and a life of misery until she dumps you.

Not like me, I am a complete idiot who would do something like that several times.
