SomeAmerican: Google has had this for years. The problem isn't the technology, its the liability.
elchupacabra: But how will cops make any money if they can't ticket for every bullshiat traffic violation under the sun?
lewismarktwo: 'Drunk driving' roadblocks where they search every car because fark you that's why.
blue_2501: lewismarktwo: 'Drunk driving' roadblocks where they search every car because fark you that's why.Thank god that's unconstitutional in the US now.
freak7: How does a hands free car work when the roads are covered in snow or if there's heavy rain?
Fubini: I talked to a guy in the biz who works with these systems, and he said one of the outstanding issues they're still dealing with is how to manage & fit the significant amount of computation needed for these systems onto a standard consumer vehicle. Right now the entire trunk is essentially server racks & power generation.
Yankees Team Gynecologist: Same as hands-on, only with the benefit of accelerometers, gyroscopes, and other sensors.
freak7: Self driving cars use cameras to "see" the roads. If everything is covered with snow, they can't see where the road ends.
freak7: After a search, I found countless stories saying that Google's cars have problems with snow covered roads. Also, there isn't a video to be found of them driving in snow.
Yankees Team Gynecologist: Well, then they haven't figured it out yet.That said, humans also have trouble driving when there's so much snow that you can't see the lines, so I'd like to know what is meant by "have problems." There's hardly a gold standard of human snow-driving to aspire to anyway, aside from a handful of professional ice road truckers and hardened veterans of Minnesota winters. Programming the car to "go slow and avoid collisions" is pretty much as good as a typical human would do anyway.
freak7: A human can see where the road would be while the Google cars rely on things like the lines on the road and curbs to determine where it is.
