Re: Connected Cars
Yeah I guess you're right! It's just hard to wrap my brain around the whole thing. Technology really is an incredible thing!

It's not THAT much further into the future, though. It's quite amazing how far autonomous driving AI has progressed so far. Just a few years ago, autonomous cars couldn't complete the DARPA Grand Challenge, and now there are some on the roads, learning how to drive. 

Sure, it'll take some time to figure out how to integrate autonomous cars with people-driven cars, but it'll happen someday. Perhaps there will be some transition period where autonomous cars will require a backup human driver, but after a few million miles of no accidents, then that requirement will fade away.

Car insurance companies are either going to be insanely profitable because there will be no more car accidents -- or they'll go out of business because no one needs to buy traditional car insurance anymore.

Re: Video, Cars, IoT
@freehe I would say you are 100% right as I do see the same trend Co. putting half-baked product to the market and customers must act as beta tester...

Re: Connected Cars
I agree!

I think that its going to be a quite a little bit longer before automatic cars are an actual thing and are suitable to be able to be on the road.

Video, Cars, IoT
With any technology that is developed that needs to be a kill button/switch. I am leary of self-driving cars because of the design or most cars they technology may not be able to detect all possible threats or events on the road.

It is great that AT&T is truly becoming a leader in telco. As far as self-driving cars how will this implement the Department of Motor Vehicles, police and other entities across the country that generate revenue from tickets, driving lessons driver's permits and tests. Many will lose their jobs and the departments will have to change their entire business practices. How can a police officer give someone a ticket if they are technically not driving and the car is driving itself. Chuckles. But these are things to consider.

The one downside with integrated technology and technology like SIMs is when one component malfuctions and systems malfunction or stop working completely. This can lead to dangerous situations when using a self-driving car if properly precations and safeguards are not implemented.

I think companies need to slow down in terms of the race to market especially when developing products like self-driving cars that can have a terrible impact on the driver and other drivers if it malfuctions.

Re: Connected Cars
It's going to take some time before self-driving cars are capable enough to actually be called level 4 autonomous vehicles! Tesla cars are still only at level 2 autonomous... and even Volvo says that Autopilot gives drivers a false impression of what to expect.

Re: Connected Cars
Self-driving cars are a few more years away from anyone really trusting them. But in the meantime, we'll get more and more fancy IoT interfaces that will let our cars know where we are and try to push mobile services at us!

@mhhf1ve interesting point, but with technology you could not teach machine human intuition - yet :)
