    How close are we to having fully autonomous vehicles on the roads? Are they safe? In Chandler, Arizona a fleet of Waymo vehicles are already in operation. Waymo sponsored this video and provided access to their technology and personnel. Check out their safety report here: waymo.com/safety/

I think if you want to convince more people of driverless cars, you need to not only put their fears at ease (which is most important), but also show exactly what the experience is like in most real world examples so they know what they are getting themselves into. This video didn't even scratch the surface (but it was a definitely a good video) For the first one ... fears. Well, what are they? Not only are they the rare edge case accidents that we'd like to think would never happen, but also standard ones. How are the cars really going to react to those? Only saw a few examples here and he never actually answered the question everyone asked a few years ago, which is, "will my car kill me to save someone else's life (or multiple people)?". Yes, it's a very unlikely situation, but people still want to know the answer to it. Also, what about software and hardware. Exactly what software is being used in the car, what is the software communicating with and how is it doing so? What quality assurance is the software undergoing? How many updates has the software had since it's release and what does releasing new software look like and have their been any failed tests in the software, and what are the consequences of those failed tests? Also, what about the hardware? What is the rate of failure? What does it take to operate? What type of maintenance does it require? How does it handle weather? What if it starts to hail and some of the outside hardware gets damaged? How does it handle a flat tire, or something else going wrong under the hood? Answers to these and so many more questions would help alleviate fears. The second one ... the actual experience. Lets remove fears from the equation for a sec and pretend we're totally on board. Okay, well, what is actually driving in the car like. How fast does it go? Does it recognize school zones when the speed limit is reduced by 15-25 mph? How does it handle speed bumps or speed humps? What if your driving the car where there is a lot of people, but a person would recognize they are on the sidewalk minding their business, would the car get too close and accidentally stop when there was no threat? I think this one, once fears are alleviated, can also be a deal breaker for some. I mean, if someone agrees that it's safe to get into a driverless care, but then are just not happy with how a driverless cars actually drives, there's a really good chance they won't opt into it. They just might find it too obnoxious and choose to drive themselves. I don't know, basically, my TL;DR is ... I'm open to being convinced in driverless cars, but I'm going to need WAY WAY more information, assurance/proof that it's a better/safer experience. But videos like this help and I'm a little more convinced, but you still have a long way to go.

The issue that bugs me with things like this is that those opposed to the idea will scrutinize the new technology and point out any and all flaws as their means to show how "See, it won't work." The problem is that tech like this doesn't necessarily need to be 100% perfect to be functional or efficient - it just needs to perform better than humans. It seems like the it is an argument from ego and an unwillingness to embrace change.

Elevator drivers are still employed in institutions riddled with corruption where nepotism is used to launder money by littering the organigram with useless people. I'd make an experiment and introduce (with city hall permission) a large fleet of self-driving vehicles in a certain city with the aim of noticing the general evolution of traffic events. If the events are dropping and the road safety increases, the the experiment succeeded and the self-driving cars may be introduced at a larger scale.

The potential for raw stats to add an impact to this video was missed. Still an awesome video and I loved seeing everything in it though. I wrote a paper in July 2018 titled, "What is society's understanding of the impact/benefits of autonomous vehicles?" In 2020 there was 1.37 fatalities per 100 million vehicle miles traveled by humans. That translates to about 100 people per day, or 36,000+ people per year. When I wrote the paper in 2018, there had been a total of 4 fatalities with autonomous vehicles in the USA (3 by Tesla and 1 by Uber) with over 5 billion autonomous miles driven. That makes 0.08 fatalities per 100,000,000 miles driven. *Deaths per 100,000,000 miles driven:* Humans: 1.37 (36,000+ deaths a year) Autonomous driving: 0.08 (4 deaths total) You pick which one you think is safer. ;) I'll hard pressed to give up driving, because, well, I love it. But the stats don't lie, even if people don't believe them. All this information is public on the United States Department of Transportation.

One important question to always ask in this topic: How to handle software bugs? Complex systems / software will have bugs leading to unforseen accidents on the road.

The same thing that happened to Air France will eventually happen with a malfunction. The auto pilot disengaged due to ice build up on one or more of the sensors so the computer didn’t know where the plane was. As a safety measure, the computer went into default and disengaged auto pilot. Now the pilots didn’t know what to do since they were relying on this system. The same could be said for self driving cars. Everything breaks at some point. After years of relying on the car to do everything, when it does break, will you be ready to jump back on the road after developing zero skills?

We were supposed to have millions of tesla taxis by ‘20, millions of personal self driving vwhicles by ‘20, we arent even close. Most the ‘no-driver’ vehicles are only ran in special areas. Areas where everything has been mapped out, all lines are as perfect as possible, all signs are exactly places as the computer needs, they have a team of people behind single rides and they still have problems with weather and unpredicted situations. This feels more like a commercial. So, again; no, no I dont want to put a half ready tech onto the road just so some CEOs can make more money.

If not then that should definitely be a priority after making them as safe as possible. I imagine all the driverless car in the future can work together in high traffic areas with properly worked out algorithms to keep traffic flowing smoothly and least better then humans can do as we can’t know what’s going on with other cars not in immediately next to us.

Whenever I'm asked, how long will it take for "technology" to reach the point at which we can do X, I think there's more to it than the science and engineering. Tech is a complex social phenomenon that evolves out of a fickle landscape of market, legal, political, and cultural forces. Seeing a small fleet driving on the road under tight restrictions in 2021 is not surprising. Seeing the parking lots torn up and replaced with greenspace, our working hours increasing by 10 per week, and expensive manual driving permits will be.

@AdelaeR i don't know why we're arguing over this. Maybe because the word "torn up" is skewed on the negative side, and the fact that the sentence is along 2 quite ridiculous ideas such as working 10 extra days per week or only delivering driving license to the wealthy people, made me think that he thought this one was ridiculous too. Because american people are so into cars, they don't see the problems tehy bring along, so i assumed he held a similar view. And i asked him about that to make sure. Maybe i could have said "I might be wrong, but you appear to think that getting rid of some parking lot is a bad thing. If that's the case, could you explain you think such a thing ?".

Regardless of how much autonomous driving makes sense, it won't take off without substantial redesign of infrastructure and transit/traffic safety laws. Like what happened after the elevator operator's strike in New York. There will be an interesting, perhaps prolonged period of mixing between driverless and traditional vehicles on the road. Adoption will vary between countries, and between different cities and the rural urban divide in the US.

Derek, 75% of people being "above average" in driving or anything else is hardly surprising, it just means it's a skewed distribution. For all we know, those people could be completely accurate in their beliefs! There is also the problem of how the question is interpreted differently by different people.

Vor 7 Tage

@Unii i actually agree, this is definitely also an effect, as well as (what I think that) Derek refers to, that we simply tend to overestimate our own ability. But both of those effects are swamped by the simple truth that abilities do behave as a skewed distribution, meaning there is just not that much of an effect left over to be explained. Also, as I said in the parent comment, the real issue is whether we can trust our survey data to begin with: did people answer the question as stated, or did they imagine "average" to refer to "median"? Did they answer "I'm better than average", or did they think "I'm pretty good and haven't had a recent major accident" and answer in the affirmative, System 1 style? I don't know- (haven't checked any studies either, sorry), but without knowing these things, the statistic is more or less meaningless.

Maybe you're right, but i think it has more to do with bias. You often notice bad driver because good drivers don't cause any probems and behave the expected way. So when someone ask you if you're a better driver than most people, you recall those bad drivers and say yes.

As an developer in high tech myself, we discussed these accidents like in the plane often. But there is a consensus of most engineers. It can be true, that completely automatised systems are more reliable and safe. (Mostly). But it take a huge effort to build them. And small changes can create huge maintenance efforts. Doing something manually is oftem cheaper. Or partly automatized... The problem lies somewhere else: you can only build or programm what you throughout understand. When you havent used or played with technical goods, no university can teach you how to build technology. You have nowadays 'for safety reasons' so many restrictions for using of simple technology and of realy using it at all, especcially cars or gun, that the basic tech level and 'the feeling' in the population is completely inexistent anymore. This is a huge problem! I give you the anecdote, 20 years ago before all the wars, before the safety hysteria and a lot of online cringe, tuning a car or motorbike and also using it speedy om backroads, was a common, non-violent hobby for young men. Like myself. Companies found their technical talents for jobs and apprenticeships. The technical universities also found their students... After all this police state and safety cringe, when fun and risk had been forbidden and criminaliced, there are nowadays no young people found for technical apprenticeships anymore and the technical universities had to shut down classes. And the general willingness to cooperate with police and state is at low point i had never experience in my life... The safety argument is the end of technology. You have to build stuff yourself (simple) or use tech to limit to understand it. Of course there are the hyperabstract MIT doctorate, that will not share my viewpoint. But they are a very small minority in the tech circles. Modern Objects contain mechanics, user case, software, electronic, electric.... Because there are no objects allowed (for legal reasons like safety and environment) the entry level into technology had become incredible high. I think the limits come from this point. For myself, it is interesting to automatice something like a car. But I do not want it, because I like driving (with some some speed), automtication in highly regulated fields like medicine, planes or cars means that you spend so much time im a grinder of legislature and paperwar so far from the real object that it is questionable if you want to do that or technology does increase your lifed quality. Why should I automatice Objects, when this means they are legally and technically away from me? This is actually the reason why I quitted engineering. There is no purpose in making life boring and expensive. Safety hysteria is not worth that.

The point with the risk analysis is actually a real problem. This because all the law and order extremists in government. The least possible case with the highest damage is considered the relevant one. Everything is considered as causal relation. This is not useful. Often a statistical approach makes sense. If you give freedom to people, then some bad things will happen, but overall, freedom works and brings overall better results. But what I think is a perversion, is that comparing a war (purposeful causing damage) with people and accidents. And it is also not true statistically, that speeding and speed is a major cause for accidents. It depends on thr traffic situation. Empty streets, few accidents. Full streets many accidents. Speed is (in European Countries) with 2% the lowest cause for accidents. There were several statistical frauds from the green Party for new legislature. I personally do not like and support this 'safety cult'. (Which started in the 1990s). Outsourcing all your everyday life to external organisations for the 'safety' argument, bears a lot of risk. See survaillance states like China... Holiday or spare time means nobody tells you what to do and complete voluntary interaction with people and organisations. An analog car is just a bunch of parts, such digital connected car is something different. I also do not like the progressive/socialist approach: yes parking needs space. And yes, a lot of property is not used all the time. But its availability makes it useful. And only the time when used wears a machine off, the capability of many everyday machines to be turned off, makes them cost and energy efficient. The parking argument is the typical anti private property argument from progressives, socialists and cooperate socialists. The use for a self driving car in traffic jam is clear. But not every usage scenario is like that. I would really like to have completely simple mechanical/electrical cars available again. (Not allowed to sell because of government regulations). Why? Diy and technology that you can not understand, fix and are not there to have fun with are boring and a waste of time.... And in the age of Microsoft Teams and co. You do not need a self driving car to safe time or to sleep in anymore...

Well, driverless cars are better than careless drivers

My main fear about self driving cars communicating to each other is that they might be hacked. Even if they cant, a smart enough car engineer can hack it for a criminal or something.

Wow, great presentation. I've been on one of those flights that landed in fog so thick I couldn't see the runway looking down from my window. I also like your comparison to the Elevator needing a driver (before my time). I know that in real circumstances driver-less cars are almost never at fault (except for maybe one brand that truly isn't supposed to be driver-less). Judging from some of the careless drivers I've experienced on Freeways, I'm fairly sure I'd rather be a passenger in an automated car.

I always thought the "moral dilemmas" were pretty stupid. As if humans think about morality in those situations. Both humans and AI would just try to avoid the accident altogether. If you have enough control to make a moral choice, you probably also still have enough control to prevent the accident.
