When AV Software Meets Human Driver…

A key question about autonomous vehicle (AV) technology is whether an AV software driver can match the capabilities of human drivers — and if so, when will this happen? The vast majority of human drivers are quite good — especially when they are focused on the driving tasks and have multiple years of driving experience. However, most drivers are not fully concentrating on the driving tasks part of the time. Or young drivers have not yet reached the skill levels to hand difficult driving events. And older drivers eventually lose... [Lire la suite]

Robotaxis: What’s The Difference Between 10x Better & 10x Safer?

When thinking of being a 10 times better driver — better in solving difficult situations — we get a completely different picture. In that case, we can remove all the victims of DUI, texting, dozing off while driving, disciplining the kids in the back seat, or plain stupid behavior like reckless speeding. That is about 90% of all accidents. The other ~10% of accidents are the result of the driver not being fast enough, not being experienced enough, having only 2 eyes (with none in the back of his head), and other normal...
