I would suggest it is never "random" braking, just braking applied at incorrect/inappropriate times. These things are flawed and are being used to make life critical decisions, and so far with no legal consequences. Why does a human's auto insurance have to cover an aI's mistakes and not the manufacturer? If a car company sold parts or components that had dangerous flaws, they are typically held to account via recalls etc. Seems AI gets a pass on this.less prone to random braking etc than the Tesla is proving to be.
Also, tryto make the rear of bike/your helmet/back more visible, esp for dark times. A proper reflective safety vest may well have saved these two riders lives.Kind of difficult to replace a sober human brain with software. Not to difficult to replicate a drunk apparently. This is some f..cked up news.
Thanks for the heads up. Will use my rear-view mirror more in the daylight. I don't ride at night.
Obviously programmed to simulate a real driver. If you are not a threat, they do not see you. What we need are motorcycles which resemble Mack trucks.Is this the piece I read from ADVrider or Canadian Moto guide ? Aconcerning developement that for sure ! Thanks for putting up here …. Think this tech on fast track in free world
Actually I can recall, decade or so ago, discussions of having vehicles transmit their locations, directions, speeds continually, so other vehicles could then determine what was coiming around a corner, through an intersection, in that icy curve ahead or in the snow storm white out/fog bank etc. This info could then be acted on, via AI or even passed to the human driver.Or we could have a device on the motorcycle which sends a signal to a following driver - such as a baseball bat.
I believe Eddie Izzard had a great solution to improve road safety....fit a giant spike to the steering wheel, an inch away from and pointed right between the driver's eyes..... ;-)I find the whole technology disgusting
It should never have got far enough that a person got injured let alone killed!!!
How on earth do these people sleep at night
A mate of mine was on a speed awareness course recently,he only drives classic minis ,he was asked what do you think would be the best way to improve road safety?
He said do away with ABS and auto braking
Do away with airbags and traction control etc
Apparently that wasn't the kinda answer they were looking for !!
