Self-driving cars doomed to be bullied by pedestrians


Some smart arses finally get it with autonomous vehicles, playing chicken will never have been easier.

You can see the gangs of hoodies lining up in the hood to see who can judge when to step out in order to get the autonomous vehicle to stop closest to them without it running them over.

Stand and deliver will have never been so easy when you smash the door windows and take what you like, having made it stop. Just how do you get those sensors to detect when someone is a friend or foe in order to decide when to run them over or make some other get away.

Programming the laws of the jungle is no Sunday afternoon drive in the countryside you know.

The Darwin awards evolve.
