Re: Self-driving cars don't need to be perfect to be deployed
An immediate slowdown or emergency stop at any uncertainty is extremely reckless and will kill people. Not could, will. It sounds like a great idea for a car on an empty road or test track, but think about the consequences if you're being tailgated, or are in dense 70 mph freeway traffic, or have a passenger who isn't wearing a seatbelt.
Remember that the majority of collisions with Google's self-driving cars occurred when they followed the rules of the road as written, but the person behind them wanted to run a yellow/red light.
