Re: Is there no icon on El Reg...

Autonomy has two easily definable challenges:

1) Drive on the road to your destination

2) Don't hit stuff you shouldn't on the way

Given the advances in machine learning, processing and video, I don't see it as anywhere near impossible.

If a child runs out in front of an autonomous car, my corporate plan would be to check the logs and recordings and determine whether the car reacted appropriately. Clear evidence showing it reacting faster than any human could will likely help the case a lot.

Governments _will_ want autonomous vehicles. Too many benefits. If the tech works, it'll show up in stats _really_ quickly.
