Meaning I have so much spare time, that I have not had time to write a post. It has been a busy and achieving day, but not for blogging. Here is a quickie I've dashed off after reading something today.
Autonomous cars may happen in my and your life time, but I doubt driverless cars will. There is a moral aspect to driverless cars which I had not thought about.
Mercedes, as I read, will have their driverless cars protect the occupants of their car at all costs. Sounds good? You would think so.
But if your Mercedes somehow got out of control, as per Princess Diana, and the options were either hitting a solid object, say a big truck or a wall, or a bus stop full of standing school children, it will take the soft option to protect the occupants of the car and mow down the school children.
This may or may not be true, but it does paint that there is a moral aspect to driverless cars.
