Well ... as an example to all complex-technology trusters out there, here's a harmless failure mode that happened last night to my daughter's fairly modern "slightly high tech" Lexus SUV:

It was just sitting in the driveway in the dark outside of her home when an electrical equipment failure began. Every 2-3 minutes it's rear hatch would open and the interior lights would come on. After a few seconds the hatch would close and the lights would go out. This strange failure cycle lasted who knows how long into the night, as she had to get some sleep so she could use a borrowed vehicle to go into work today.

Self-driving technology only belongs in freight trains - not in airplanes or public road vehicles. Not all gadgets that work for the good of some work for the good of all.


Here's an addition to my post above: I just finished research on my daughter's "mysterious self-opening" rear hatch problem on her Lexus SUV. It appears that many others have had this happen, and on other vehicle models too, and of course on garage door openers.

Soooo ... I guess we (not me) should trust the way, way, way more complex self-driving systems eventually deployed in everyday run-around vehicles all over the world? I think not.
