Despite the promise of driverless cars, the technology is not perfect. Driverless cars are not prepared to stop for jaywalking pedestrians, and their computer vision systems are “deeply flawed.” In addition, Lithium-ion batteries are highly combustible, which is problematic for self-driving cars. As a result, these vehicles will likely require human intervention in order to stay safe.
Driverless cars aren’t prepared to stop for jaywalking pedestrians
Uber and other companies that are developing driverless cars have expressed concerns that the technology might burden pedestrians, according to reports by an experienced self-driving car accident lawyer. At the same time, driverless cars pose a novelty problem. People may not behave as naturally around these cars as they do around cars. For example, the company Waymo has encountered pedestrians who purposefully jaywalk. These incidents will only increase the need for autonomous cars.
Until the driverless cars are developed, there will likely be …Read more
