Re: 5G on Cars
Was there a passenger in the car at the time? I haven't been following the story closely. I would expect an emergency take over option for passengers in a self-driving car.

Re: 5G on Cars
@ms. akkineni The weird thing is that who even knew that Uber was testing out self-driving cars? And for what reason? Was there something in it for them? The first I heard of it was when that accident happened. I wonder if Uber was doing it anywhere else. Also, did the passenger realize they were in a self-driving car, and did they willingly still take the ride?

Re: 5G on Cars
@srufolo1 - EXACTLY! I would completely expect for a driverless car to be a better drive then a human. We're continually told we aren't as smart as computers, and if that's the case, than computers should certainly have a greater ability to drive than we do. And if they don't - then they need to get off the roads.

Re: 5G is still in the future
@ms. akkineni - I just saw that Uber is paying out a settlement to the victims family. I think in general the idea of settlements is to not admit guilt, but I'm not sure what the point of paying out a settlement is, if you're not guilty? I personally hope all driverless cars are being pulled for the time being, not just Uber's. Though I just Waymo's technology is significantly better. All I know is I didn't trust driverless cars before this. I REALLY don't trust them now.

Re: 5G on Cars
This raises even more questions about the true safety of self-driving cars. If they are so good at following traffic laws, why did this one ignore? I really thought more time was needed before self-driving cars were left on the road without in-car human supervision.

Re: 5G on Cars
The challenge is to make sure that we're ready and not be overwhelmed--as the Facebook debacle has shown,  we have to truly anticipate this coming wave...

Onward to April & Q2 with all its possiblities!!

@mpouraryan:

Completely agree with you. We all know that CHANGE is the only constant in life. So we got to embrace and adapt. I heard in news today while driving - a baby born today may never drive in his/her life time, which made me think about this whole concept and its future advancement.

Re: 5G on Cars
@srufolo1:

That is right. I even wonder why the test was run in populated areas. I understand eventually it got to be tested in populated areas, but i think not yet.
