Re: Missing the obvious
"This, and all your other "top of the head" suggestions are at least 20 years away in real life. No government minister is going to be think past the next election. They are acting like it's a done deal and just needs a bit of tweaking. Those of us who actually know something about computers, even if not in the AI or computer vision fields, know we are long way from real AVs"
You're pointing at the end goal and suggesting that it's 20 years away - you maybe right. However there are a lot of steps in between where more tasks are taken away from drivers, particularly in large cities.
This is stuff that a number of other countries (USA, Japan - I don't have details for Europe) are already doing to work towards better traffic management.
