So does that make them Educated Idiots, or smart ass stupid??
Let's hope Tesla doesn't become "Self Aware"
Russia has a doomsday setup now. Under certain conditions it will launch missiles. https://www.wired.com/2009/09/mf-deadhand/

People do forget, not you.
autonomous BS, no drivers can kiss my lily-white ass they are putting others in jeopardy at least be behind the freaken' wheel, just incase
On the other hand...
Cars with self-drive capabilities.... Cars with the ability to "phone home" and broadcast constant information on condition AND location..... Cell phones that constantly monitor their location and report same Yeah, nothing to worry about, eh?
Here in Northern CO they showed a video of a guy asleep at the wheel OUT COLD and his girlfriend too going down the highway right after they showed this Tesla fire. Can't fix stupid.
It seems like everything being manufactured today is made for "Dummies". Cars for Dummies, lawn mowers for Dummies, the list goes on. The one problem with all of the safety features is that there is more to go wrong, more diagnostic procedures to perform, more cost involved when it comes time to repair. I'm more worried about a vehicle that has self driving capabilities on the same road as I'm driving on! I believe that the Telsa wasn't recognizing the color white and wouldn't brake for things like tractor trailers
On the tractor trailer rig the Tesla's sensors were looking under the chassis & between the wheels.... The body of the car got through fine... It was the green house & the head of the guy who was supposed to be driving that stopped after contact with the trailer.... The car continued down the road about 1/4 mile... Clearly the guy didn't need his head he wasn't using it anyway....
Self driving is bad enough but my dam phone with autocorrect correct and fill in the blank is pissing me off! Proving I need to proof read before firing the message off. Dang thing and my fat fingers don’t get along well...
My refrigerator doesn't need a wifi connection. My washing machine doesn't need one, either. My car doesn't need to record my every driving input for use as evidence against me later, dirty effin' snitch.
Those dopey features on household appliances appeal to younger people that are oblivious to what's going on around them and need to have their cell phones to remind them to tell them that dinner in the oven is ready and when to pull the laundry out of the washer and drier.
I personally am not a fan of self driving vehicles or any of the drive by wire features of some. Like my truck with the APPS for a gas pedal. Good thing I don't panic when its fruited out. Having it go out while you have 800+ ftlbs of torque in a 4 ton truck could be disastrous if you don't keep your head screwed on. And just think. The people who are all in on smart houses, self driving cars etc. are afraid of firearms. A firearm cannot come close to doing the damage of a vehicle at speed.
I'm starting to believe there's entire generations that have grown up so nose-deep in their cell phones that they simply could not survive without them - and therefore, everything necessary to daily life MUST communicate with them through their surrogate phone "brain" or they can't function. It's so sad to see....
I'm surprised that with the amount of nose-deep in their cell phone people, especially kids/millenials, that some wise arse hasn't started slapping peoples hands up to knock the cell phones away from the owners. Kinda like the "kick me" label on the back of guys shirts back in the day.
Not just millenials.... NYC police officer (of age) nearly ran my buddy down in his marked squad car. Blew a red light while texting .... not even looking through the windshield. No lights/siren, just being stupid. I literally grabbed my bud by his collar and pulled him back to the ground or he would have been struck. Officer just kept going, completely unaware. Pedestrians in crosswalks crossing against a green, texting .... stop in the middle of the walk ... to do what? Think of an appropriate response? Not sure about everywhere but here it's a decent sized problem, IMHO. PS. I totally support law enforcement but bad apples are everywhere.
In the late 90's I watched trucking company management of the big carriers, including my boss, embrace satellite tracking of their equipment, giving them the ability to micromanage drivers from a distance. Werner had an astute General Counsel who advised them to plan on giving up the prevailing practice of fudging hours of service compliance if they were going to implement global positioning systems; they became the first carrier to implement electronic hours of service logs. The systems did indeed rat everybody else out, including my employer, which plaintiff lawyers used to their advantage for years to come.
