Think of how helpful it would be to have temporary , mobile, self assembling pontoon bridges in emergencies, rush hour, or tense political battles in New Jersey!

/drove the world's longest pontoon bridge once

Too bad they didn't have these when Samuel L Clemens was a youth. He would've never become a Mississippi river boat pilot and just maybe he wouldn't of started writing all of those awful books.

Gah, stop putting machine learning AI in autonomous vehicles with people in them you dummies.

Fine to use the machine learning software to develop the AI software rules, but you do not want a learning software making decisions on the fly when people are in, or on something being controlled without a direct human control/override.

CSB, seriously, we had one multimillion dollar vehicle just decide on its' own that;

It did not have to complete the survey mission profile,
It did not have to pay attention to any of the safety 'rules' that are supposed to keep it in a specific geographic boundary,
It did not have to pay attention to any of the safety 'rules' that kept it from getting to close to the seafloor or going to deep beyond operational depth,
After chasing it for 3 hours it finally decided to accept the abort command and stop heading to NJ.
It was actually heading straight for NJ from about 100 miles north of the Bahamas.

funny that subject came up on a mississipi river lock chat im on, a fifty year river pilot basically said "oh hell no" when the idea if autonomous barge tows was brought up...

Red light district is dead right now because of covid. Have a buddy over there last week, he said there were only a few places currently open and only a handful of women in any of the 'doors'.

Did make it easier for him to walk around and check out all the sites through.

I wish they had explained how this solves a problem in Amsterdam.

I was curious, which part of New Jersey would you have had to retrieve the robot from, if it didn't listen to commands and somehow had the fuel/energy to travel that far? I have several jokes based upon New Jersey locations, considering I have lived in this State my entire life. :-P
