I just watched a car drive itself on a video at 150 MPH! Unbelievable. Would you trust self-driving cars to drive you at normal driving speeds if the technology was available?
Christine comes to mind
Never in my life
If I can drive it with my seizures,me by all means
Under regular driving conditions, yes by all means. The driver is the most unsafe piece of equipment in any vehicle, as speeding and tailgating demonstrate...
As much as I dislike and am anxious about driving, I don't know if I can trust a self diving car in my current location. I live in northern MN and I don't like the idea of an automated car diving me in inclement weather. Seems like a bad idea.
I mean, I don't even like driving in snow and blizzards and ice. Plus I live in a super hilly city. Too many scary factors.
I just hit 107 on my own the other day. That seemed fast enough.
If it was the Audi, I watched it too. It was a closed circuit, it was all alone and the route was preprogrammed.
We currently trust ourselves doing 80mph surrounded by other humans doing 80mph. I can't wait for autonomous cars, 90+% of driving is either monotonous, commuting, or traffic. Horseback riding was fun once, too, and you can still do it for fun,
I understand that Cadillac plans to release a self-driving car in '17. It'll drive at high speed and in congestion without the driver using the pedals or steering wheel. Soon after that they expect the cars' technology to communicate with each other.
I could be wrong on it being Cadillac, but I don't think so. I got the article in a professional journal, though from a different industry.
Safety fails.... Plus it wouldn't be as fun as driving a car yourself.
I agree. I enjoy driving.
Humans fail ALL THE TIME.
Not all the time dude. You think Martin Luther Kjng Jr. Failed? No. And he's human. Safety fails, and I'm not stupid enough to drive drunk or anything else deleterious.
Seriously? You took my comment and jumped to MLKJr? Seriously? And no offense, but I'm pretty sure MLK was not 100% perfect, so, yeah, humans fail. A shitload of the time.
Yeah but that's not what you said. You said humans fail ALL THE TIME and I happen to disagree... Suddenly you changed your comment to "not perfect 100% of the time". Which doesn't mean you fail, especially since we learn from our mistakes.
Ah, the old "I'm going to take what you said as 100% literal"argument. Such mature. Much usefulness.
You pulled the same stunt... If you want the last word go ahead and take it... I'm done.
Yes! I can't wait to own a self driving car!!
Sure. I trust an airplane to fly itself every time I get on a commercial jet, and they mostly do OK.
True... There's a lot less traffic and possible threats up above everything, but I get what you're saying
But Cat IIIc autoland capability, meaning an aircraft that can land itself in zero-zero (ceiling and visibility) weather has existed in commercial aircraft since the 1970s. Autoland is fairly commonly used (with slightly higher minimums) today.
Interesting.. Perhaps I underestimated their technology...
It is pretty amazing, and the worse the weather is, the more likely the jet is landing itself. The only reason we still have weather minimums is to ensure taxiing in can be done safely.
I think there are way too many unaccounted factors that could possibly happen to trust my life in one of those cars currently.
Google is working on an autonomous race car
I would probably trust it more than some of the drivers out there now.
I just bought a 2015 Subaru with Eyesight. Crazy amazing. Set the cruise and don't worry about the car in front.
I bought a 2014 Lexus with radar cruise and pre-collision braking whatever. It's nice to have.
I set cruise on 40 but whatever the car in front did it did, 25, 30, 35. It applies the brakes! Actually a little spooky!
I would trust it, but I still dont prefer it! Let me drive!
Statistically they are safer, sure I would trust them. I trust bus drivers, pilots, elevators, and a lot of other people and machines to not kill me on a daily basis. Realistically the biggest problem is liability, so maybe a part time system would
Best. There are already systems to travel the highway and in stop and go traffic automatically and they work beautifully even without a pre-mapped 3d model of the roads. I don't think self driving cars will happen for a long time, but they are safer.
To some degree yes, but less than I trust myself.
