No One Knows What A Self Driving Car Is, And Its Becoming A Problem…

Check out this article   Its important that we understand this issue.

Let me wet your appetite:

“We have now self-driving cars.” So declared no less an authority than the United States’ chief of transportation, Secretary Elaine Chao, in a May interview with Fox Business. “They can drive on the highway, follow the white lines on the highway, and there’s really no need for any person to be seated and controlling any of the instruments.”

This is wrong. Today, you can indeed buy a car with controls steering and braking for you. Tesla, Cadillac, Mercedes-Benz, Lexus, and Audi already, or soon will, offer this sort of advanced driver assistance system. But nothing now available or coming soon will let you nap or email or slap on a VR headset behind the wheel. Contrary to Chao’s thinking, today’s cars very much need humans to supervise them and intervene if something goes wrong.

In a nutshell, the automobile manufacturers are calling vechicles ‘self driving’ when they aren’t even close, and won’t be for some time.

I have nothing more to say except take a few minutes are bring yourself up to date on this future-think phenomenon.
