Taking another angle to the great post by Arsène Lefevre Farcy on howSelf-driving cars could be serious job-killers this article on Popular Science outlines another issue with self-driving vehicles - what do they do when human drivers don't follow the rules of the road perfectly? What do you think? Can self-driving cars co-exist with human drivers? Would you trust being in a car that must predict human reactions?
Thank you Laura Gillies! Brrr… the concluding sentence of the article gives a 'funny' thrill : « Only when people have been eliminated can robots finally drive in safety. » It is true that human reactions are sometimes incomprehensible even by the most sophisticated robot!
Thanks Laura Gillies ! Because, as normal nature behavior, people are defending what they believe on, we will have many pros & many cons on the same topic with sometimes different interpretation of the same facts/numbers.
Stating that nobody is perfect, nor a "robot", let's not try to reach the perfection with no chances to succeed ;-) but rather improve what we have. That's, for me the interest of self driving. I am convinced it will bring much more advantages than issues.
An interesting point risen, is about the fact that we will not switch from human drivers to self-driving in one day. We will have to manage a long lasting period with both at the same time.
A funny topic will be the car competitions were this is the reverse process which is played: To have less automation in order to demonstrate that this is the driver who is the best ;-)
