"If it is an autonomous vehicle then I have zero control and should not be held responsible if there is an accident."
Yep, was reading about the new Audi A8. Audi chappy said....
"If you're offering Level 3 (autonomy), we are in charge of the driving part. That means, of course, if we have driven, then we are responsible."
So Audi bloke reckons it can be their fault if it crashes. Which I think is totally fair. If I'm still responsible when the 'puter is driving, then I'm going to be doing the driving thanks, not the computer.
