Lost in translation?

> Ultimately, drivers will still bear responsibility if their autonomous charabanc crashes, unless it was caused by a system failure

A system can either be autonomous, or it can have someone in control (possibly one or the other at different times). But to say that a person is responsible for an autonomous vehicle, or that a vehicle is autonomous if it has a "driver" is contradictory.
