I don't want a computer to drive my car. I design electronic systems but I don't want my life run by a CPU and the dweebs at Google.

I think its a good idea , they should deploy them to bars and cantinas and have them be the designated driver!

As a software engineer who works on Artificial Intelligence, I find it hard to believe that given our current technology we can come up with a program sophistaicated enough to account for all possibilities on the road.

As such, I think taking the driver out of the equation 99% of the time is a bad idea. When that 1% arrives drivers will either not be paying attention or their reflexes will have been dulled from lack of recent driving experience and they will not be able to deal with the situation as well as they could have.

Until they can get it 100% perfect (if that is even possible), it is potential for disaster.

If Toyota makes these, they will end up going out of control and being a death trap POS!

Would you really want to manufacture something like this in the US? The lawyer lizards are going to love this.

Hell, we let PEOPLE drive cars now and we're nowhere near 100% perfect.

It sounds like a dream, but just imagine the cars software crashing and then your hardware crashes into a tree..
