"Starting small" with autonomous vehicle testing but doing it as soon as possible could be the way to go. Drive.ai CEO S. Tandon said "We know there are hard problems. We know we will solve them over time. We know we want to do something today.”


Excellent Car and Driver article about Drive.ai's Autonomous Shuttle service that will kick off this July in Frisco, Texas in the DFW Metroplex. https://www.caranddr...orkers-to-lunch



The problem is that regulators have agreed to beta testing on public roads without

fully understanding the tech and its limitations. 


Any other vehicle type with such a glaring lack of inherent  safety to the public (competent operator)

wold be immediately removed from public use but somehow, there is a huge perception gap with AVs.

We want them so badly that we're prepared to give away all the necessary checks and validation tests....


All the talk in the world about triple redundancy is useless if the basic system can't detect obstacles and

pedestrians it's supposed to avoid. Even some simple tests to prove that the system responds adequately

to avoidable objects that move into the vehicle's path.


And the reason Google and Uber want to field test without tests in place is because they know that

their systems are not perfect and most likely fail the expectations of a most basic test, avoiding pedestrians.

I consider some things to be inevitable ... like:

- lawmakers sticking completely ignorant noses where they doN'T belong

- tech-types [fore-]seeing only what they want/like

- the rich not giving a sheise about the needs of the non-rich



- how many have to die to give up on it?


It's sad the crappy memorial they have at that site. 

Just a tiny pole with a little blimp on it. Can barely see it.
