Wait a year and see.
Yes, perspective and 'context'. To drag up the old car metaphor - in many countries the most common car used for taxis is the e-class Mercedes because it offers a degree of comfort and a high level of reliability. In that sense it qualifies as a 'professional' car. But the model chosen as a taxi ain't no SLS-AMG. A race driver would never consider an e-class a suitable choice for his job, but that doesn't make the e-class any less of a professional vehicle. And so with...
Agree with all of that. At one point in one of the videos I think they do mention the fuel efficiency gained through 'better' driving. The stereotyping is odd - I put it down to bad marketing, and yes - the steering whee! It just looks odd. You'd imagine it would retract, or something. I also wonder about the ability of people to 'take over' when the need arises. After a period of time and general usage I'd worry that people would no longer be capable of 'taking over'....
This is the best video explaining the new system. I saw a much earlier video but this looks pretty interestinghttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v9D2N4Gp3wYNeither video below actually explains how the technology works but they show examples and you get a bit of a sales pitchhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dO6JtncrY08https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v7Up8m6p8DU (long intro)http://www.technewsworld.com/story/81734.html?rss=1
Don't confuse the watch with what is still thought of as a 'normal' watch.
Why on earth don't cruise controls disengage automatically when it rains? I had no idea about this and I do use cc often.You are a wiser man than me! I have seen a few videos of different 'self driving' projects. Volvo has developed a system whereby cars digitally chain together. I can quite remember how it works if the 'leader' car or truck drives irrationally, or pulls up or off, but the idea being that automatically link up and respond to a leading car. The example they...
Agree with all above on this - Research Kit looks like it will be very significant and may indeed prove to radically change how much research is done. It's one of those face-plant moments when the instant you hear about it it seems so obvious. I look forward to earning more about specific research project implementation and results.
You are right in both that there would need to be incremental steps - an autonomous self driving car is science fiction, but each step towards 'assisted' driving will be fraught with problems one which would be about liability. I wonder if cruise control has ever been 'blamed' for accidents directly or indirectly.Of course it can, and probably far more safely than humans. But I was imagining a future of fully autonomous vehicles and realizing that at the point at which AI...
