Re: Autonomous vehicle safety ignored
I'm not convinced that humans can instinctively control a vehicle, and I'm pretty sure that many of them have no idea what they are doing, even after significant training and a small test.
If a human driver - even only a learner driver - was put in the same circumstances as the Uber crash, it would not have happened. A human driver would have seen the victim, and either slowed down or manoeuvred the vehicle to avoid a collision.
Even a learner driver on their first ever outing would not have blithely continued and run into the victim. This is what I mean about the built in instincts.
