Re: 5G is still in the future
@ms.akkineni I prefer not to go anywhere near a self-driving car until all the kinks have been worked out. The Uber accident that killed a woman in Arizona is such a tragedy. Until they get it right, I fear that more of these kinds of accidents are going to occur.

Re: 5G on Cars
..and I understand (I have not personally verified it due to commitments for the Daily Outsider & other projects) that apparently the victim was "supposedly" jay walking....the point is that the intelligence needs to be enhanced considerably--I can't help but wonder how the Self-Driving Truck Experiments are going.

Truly Challenging times indeed!!

Re: 5G on Cars
@Joe - I would almost say without a doubt then this (if it's true) confirms my theory. The driver was looking at their phone. I suppose they could have technically been looking at just about anything. But my thoughts always go to phones anymore. I think it's a comedian acting as a teacher and they say something like, "Nobody smiles at their pants like that." So true. So true. Lol.

@John: Put another way, there are much thinner profit margins in the human-accountability business. ;)

Re: 5G on Cars
@mpouraryan: FWIW, I saw a headline about how video allegedly showed the human operator in the self-driving car looked down seconds before the collision. Distracted driving. Or, in this case, distracted not-driving. ;)

Re: 5G on Cars
@Ariella: Unfortunately, it's this kind of thinking -- of avoiding the most minor of speeding/traffic offenses under a strict interpretation of the law -- that leads to the accidents we see with autonomous vehicles. They appear to be programmed to err on the side of obeying the strictest interpretation of the law rather than to err on the side of safety. Sometimes, to avoid an accident, it is necessary to speed up above the speed limit, let the pedestrian waiting at the crosswalk continue to wait, or go over the double-yellow lines, and so on.

Re: 5G is still in the future
Remember there was a "human" in the Arizona Car and yet someone died.

Your implicit message that we have to accept it is right on--but the question is at what cost?

Re: 5G on Cars
The Uber Car in Arizona had a "physical driver"--why the driver did not override the system is one of the questions I'd like to know--although 5G is great--and the evolution is in line with progress, the question is whether it has truly hit primetime.

Re: 5G on Cars
The UBER tragedy in Arizona has set things back--what is critical to note that the progress cannot be stopped--but there is still a lot of work that still needs to be done--and there is a "Webcam" as the tragedy unfolded.....
