Re: Still waiting...
You missed the bit where the fella ALSO failed to spot the trailer. He was supposed to be paying attention with his (ridiculously named autopilot) computer assistance, not letting it drive itself while making a brew or somesuch.
IMHO this is one of the worst things about the current autonomous cars, I don't think it's any kind of good thing insisting that the driver continues to pay full attention as if driving while enabling them to pay far less or no attention (because humans).
We need cars that need driving, or cars that drive themselves. Not this halfway house that may well lead to accidents which will lead to some ban/restriction/loss of support.
Personally I can't wait until driverless cars enable an automated on-demand door-to-door taxi service, but I think that's a few years off, and that assumes we sort the problem that pedestrians/other road users/crims realise they can behave however they like around them.
