If there were Level 5 autonomous cars available today, would you get in one? Would you trust a robot with your life?

    Yes. I would trust a level 5 AV with my life. However I would not trust it to get me anywhere fast. Humans will always be better at fighting through city traffic, and that is why AVs have a long way to go before they will take off. TBH I don't know that we will see widespread adoption in our lifetimes.

      It seems like there is a critical mass that needs to be reached before these things will be truly successful. If there are mostly human drivers, and a few AVs, the AVs are going to struggle because humans are so difficult to predict. They basically have to drive very defensively, assuming the worst in ever driver. Making a left turn onto a busy road will stymie them. But if most of the cars on the road are AVs, they are easier to predict -- potentially they could even talk to each other and negotiate intersections etc.

        I agree, if all cars were autonomous, I wouldn't hesitate to get in one. Human driving habits are difficult to judge. I took a ride in a Lyft Aptiv car in Vegas, it took us 15 minutes to get from ine hotel to another, I got carsick to boot. Heavy breaking due to a very cautious software setup.

          Yeah I bet. They obviously have to be super cautious now since they are on thin ice by default as far as public perception is concerned. It will only take a few mishaps for people's trust to be severely shaken. But that caution also hampers them.

      I agree, maybe my kids one day will get picked up by autonomous Uber cars, maybe even flying cars like the Jetsons 😆
