    #154-Amazon Prime's "Upload," and my thoughts on their trolley paradox solution

    #154-Amazon Prime's "Upload," and my thoughts on their trolley paradox solution

    Amazon Prime recently launched a (ridiculous) new show called Upload. The first 15 minutes show a passable take on an AV future in which the lead character's AV is hacked and he crashes and dies and goes to (virtual) heaven. There's a subtle, implicit reference to the trolley paradox, and a suggested solution to simply "prioritize" your AV according to your preferences, e.g., to prioritize pedestrians over other cars. This is a rambling, stream of conscious discussion in which I try to unpack and destroy this admittedly clever but deeply troubling approach.

    #153-GM Ultra Cruise; Self-Driving Scooters; Improved Regulation for Delivery Bots

    #153-GM Ultra Cruise; Self-Driving Scooters; Improved Regulation for Delivery Bots

    1. GM Ultra Cruise: GM's current semi-autonomous driving tech, Super Cruise, uses onboard HD maps for certain freeways to enable hands-free driving on those freeways that are mapped. Now, GM is planning to expand this tech city streets with so-called Ultra Cruise.

    2. E-Scooters are going autonomous as Go X borrows Tortoise's self-driving scooter retrofit kit to shuttle scooters autonomous to passengers and then to parking spots.

    3. Delivery bots like Nuro's R2 desperately need better (and more permissive) regulation.

Les Teague ,

Outstanding

The series of podcasts would make excellent book for training engineers for a career in autonomous vehicle field. Les Teague

Tenbay ,

Huh?

I first got to listen to sponsorships which is fine and I get. Then the rest of the podcast was a commercial for Tesla and a tech company. I learned nothing.

Abhayk ,

One of best for autonomous cars

I really enjoyed and learned a lot from this series. As a new comer and enthusiast for AV this is one of the best platform to get started with AV.

Thank you!
