Are Self-Driving Cars Safe‪?‬ Techstream with Shelly Palmer and Seth Everett

    • Technology

Between Herbie the Love Bug and KITT from Knight Rider, we have been obsessed with self-driving cars. Tesla has produced Autopilot, while other cars have Adaptive Cruise Control.

The debate about autonomous vehicles has focused on safety. Are these vehicles safer than a normal, human-driven vehicles? Still, if your car can "take over," should you still be paying attention?

There have been well-documented cases of crashes where the AI misjudged its situation but is it user error if the driver isn't paying attention?

Shelly and Seth debate how far the technology is from being fully operational. Still, is this the next evolution of automotive travel? If Electric Vehicles are the future, do they have to drive themselves?
