All this cyber stuff might fly in California, but I would like to see a driverless car navigate snow and ice covered roads here in Canada. I wouldn't want to be in one in a snow storm.

According to Tusk, he will have a fleet of 1,000,000 Robotaxies this year.

Now I don't know if I will live out this year but I think so? I have a feeling you're going to be correct and tusk is FOS like always.

OP; almost 400 people lost their lives in plane wrecks due to outsourcing software to $9 an hour workers in other countries. And they have found more bugs in the software after testing it to return those planes to service.

Boeing outsourced its software to $9 an hour engineers.

Nice hu? Naaaaa, I will take my TV with a steering wheel and pedals.

I positively can't agree with all the negativity.

Until self driving cars are mandatory I'm not worried about it.

When the highway death toll drops to insignificant numbers, when tailgating and road rage are a thing of the past, when speeding doesn't exist, you will wish this happened sooner.

The experts say that this is decades away. One said "fully self-driving cars are 20 years in the future. And always will be."

Not a chance. Some prefer the experience of driving. Not just a means of getting to point B. I will never be the market for that technology.

The new cruise being tested will not have a steering wheel or pedals for the gas and brake.

I just don't think I would be comfortable in such a vehicle. For me it would be the lack of being in control.


Did you teach your kids to drive? How was that experience?
