  • No, it's just the car manufacturers revolutionary new method of population control.

      Lol seriously though I think they're going to prove to be safer than human drivers.

      Maybe some day, but who would be at fault when one mows down a bunch of pedestrians at a crossing in the mean time ?

      I only had three and sold out. Your refund ? Just because you only wanted two windows doesn't mean I'm going to refund you for the other eight.

      Hug a Muslim or two and see where it gets you.
    • Ice man
      I don't think they're into hugging Muslims either...

      Maybe they could form a basket ball team & call themselves "the Harem Globetrotters " ?

      I would imagine wearing all that dynamite must impede their ability to jump very high ..

      I'd hug a Muslim.
  • 8-6-2017 No, but several hackers have demonstrated how easy it is to take control of any random car, usually through the Bluetooth circuits in the radio. In a home they hack the light bulbs, and occasionally a refrigerator. http://mentalfloss.com/article/503104/7-everyday-objects-hackers-can-target
  • Woe be to the individual(s) responsible for the failure. Airplanes have autopilot. A computer can takeoff and land an airplane nevertheless less a live human being must be at the wheel 100% of the time. Automobiles are not airplanes. The whole idea of a car on autopilot is pointless.
  • I can just see it now. There's an imminent unavoidable collision and a split second to turn right...or left. On the right: two white guys. On the left: three black guys. Car hits the black guys. Uh oh...
    • Linda Joy
      Get real! Even you are smarter than to write that kind of garbage into a program!
  • Wait, here's another ethical dilemma. There's an old woman having trouble walking who needs a ride. There's also a couple great sets of boobs..um attached to some lovely young butts, I mean ..oh dear..women !! *sweats* (You don't want ME to write this program, huh?) ..Anyway, the car stops and gives the beach babes a lift. The program's writer claims it was because there were two versus one, so the right choice was made. But was it? ............Or consider this...if you can only save one life or another, which would be worth more: a youngster or an old person? Sure the young person is stronger and hypothetically more able to handle things on her own, and the old lady cant. She "needs" the help more. Sure. Sure But if you were a car, mightn't you imagine the youngster has 60 years left that could be lost, while the aged woman has maybe none? So the youngster has more to lose, and should be saved. .......................................How do we teach a machine to think about such things? Do we let it watch the original Death Race 2000 movie and see if it's either horrified or amused? Or do we have a bleeding heart talk endlessly to it about feelings? Or let someone who cares only of statistics program it? Well, I for one hope this whole driverless cars thing never takes off. After all, THEN how would I be able to run over my neighbor and just tell the cop the gas pedal got stuck again?

      I'm sure many might find this funny. I don't. Sad part is you're one of the few here who could actually have an intelligent conversion about this and you choose to piss away the opportunity and feign ignorance. Oh well, I'm sure you have your reasons.
    • Linda Joy
      computers don't think they just run program.

      Cars have to work equally well in the dark. I think it is unlikely that any car could be programmed to recognize skin color, body shape or age of an object ahead, particularly when heavy clothing is involved.
  • Funnily enough, no. And I feel a better person for it.
  • i dont think its a good idea, people can get hit by thenn
