Re: 5G is still in the future
@srufolo1:

Yes, I saw the news today. Uber stopped their plans to continue testing and their cofounder is leaving. I am not sure what comes next from Uber on this. We just need to wait and see.

But at the same time, someone or the other has to keep moving the initiative. These initial hiccups are unavoidable, but must take all measures in terms of impcting life.

Re: 5G on Cars
@ms. akkineni  This "self-driving" car was reportedly even going 5 miles over the speed limit, so it apparently wasn't even obeying traffic laws. The person that was behind the wheel just in case could have at least corrected that! These cars are better on highways right now, not in populated areas.

Re: 5G is still in the future
@ms. akkineni Saw in the news today that Uber is pulling the self-driving cars from its program and the co-founder has reportedly left the company. I don't know why Uber decided to test out self-driving cars. Seems to have been an awful risky decision.

Re: 5G on Cars
I always try to remain hopeful--I see no other choice--because we have to embrace change (not for the sake of it) but to make sure we end up make things better.   Easier said than done--but we have to for the sake of the all.

Re: 5G on Cars
@srufolo: Yeah, but they effectively have that already, in the form of autonomous-vehicle companies negotiating agreements with states, as Uber, Google, and several others have done.

Re: 5G on Cars
@mpouraryan: That implies that all transformation is progress.

Or, put another way, paraphrasing a tweet I once read: We're all progressives. It's just a matter of what we consider progress.

Re: 5G on Cars
@John: And more to your point, insurance companies are like the machines referenced in your quote; they prefer certainty. Having a human driver to always default blame to as opposed to a robot driver could well become as standard as placing presumptive blame on the rear vehicle in a rear-ending.

Re: 5G on Cars
Uber, it seems, at times takes one step forward and two steps back.   This is some true food for thought for all to think about as we continue to deliberate its' progress:

Re: 5G on Cars
We can't fight progress--that's an implicit message about Transformation.     We have to think about not just "Mania", but truly the Day after tomorrow--there lies the challenge.

Onward to April with all its' possiblities!!!

Re: 5G on Cars
@srufolo1, @vnewman:

Absolutely, i shared similar thoughts in one of my comments. There must be something from technology standpoint, which clearly not existed and that is the major concern for what happened. I was surprised how could that be missing in design at this age many things run by sensors. Would it be too difficult for a car to sense something or someone and come to a stop or beep / alert insde so the driver can take over just to apply brake. Atleast any one of those options could reduce the intense of situation.
