Re: 5G on Cars
@elizabethv:

I don't blame you. But my guess is it must have passed some kind of initial testing before it got on road. Just a guess, not sure.

Re: 5G on Cars
Absolutely. It should be as simple as being able to get off the cruise control as needed. No other rocket science per say.

Re: 5G on Cars
@elizabethv  Maybe such cars should not be tested in places with so many pedestrians at first until some of the kinks are worked out. It will take me a long time to even think of using a driverless car.

Re: 5G is still in the future
@Elizabeth: I don't blame you. I am sure not just you many others would feel the same. Definitely that model needs to become more stable for consumers to gain confidence and start trusting. Hopefully it won't be too long to get there.

Re: 5G on Cars
@dlr5288: Hoping to hear and see lot more. It is true that there is a hiccup with uber incident. But efforts will go on to make the model better and better. I heard over the weekend in the news that uber is targeting to go public in an year. So there will be much more coming along the way.

Re: 5G on Cars
@srufolo: Uber drivers, like traditional cabbies, gotta be between fares some of the time. In particular, some even strategize and collaborate on when to go offline and when to go online to time their working time well with demand.

Re: 5G on Cars
@Joe and Srufolo1 - Yeah I don't think there was a passenger. I think it was just a test. In the long run, Uber having self-driving cars would realistically mean they wouldn't have to pay a human to drive the car. (Or would they because you would still want a human backup? Not sure on this one.) I had no idea that they were testing drive-less cars, but do know there are several companies testing driver-less cars in Arizona. A friend of mine has seen them. I am originally from Arizona and know more than a few people that live there. Drivers are AWFUL in the Phoenix area, so it's either a REALLY good place to test, or a horrible one. 

 

On another note, did anyone see Tesla's driverless automation is being blamed for a fatality in California now as well? Not a good week for the whole idea of "driverless cars."

Re: 5G on Cars
@Joe Stanganelli and Michelle  I assumed there was a passenger in the car, otherwise why would the driver be in the car in the first place? But maybe not. No mention was made of a passenger. I'd like to see how this whole thing shakes out as far as lawsuits against Uber. I feel the company made a terrible mistake with this test pilot.

@Michelle: I was under the impression that there was no passenger. (Perhaps I am wrong?) Otherwise, it would have been widely reported, I tend to think.

Well, if they weren't looking at their phone, the alternatives would seem embarrassing indeed!
