A good perspective on the caution required as we enter an era of self driving cars. While I normally find myself in full support of the switch, there were a few sections that made me think and we definitely have a long way to go.
There was one statement that gave me pause:
No system can yet match a human driver’s ability to respond to the unexpected, and sudden failure could be catastrophic at high speed.
I would argue that a primary reason for looking forward to autonomous vehicles is that no system can match a human driver’s ability to cause the unexpected.
