Re: 5G on Cars
Oh, yes. There is still lot of tecting going on whie driving. I also see many adults (i mean not just teenagers or young adults) do that. For me texting is a distraction not just while driving, our brain gets side tracked even if we try checking texts at a traffic light stop. Once the light is back you are kind of puzzled for a quick few seconds as you are preoccupied. That itself is dangerous enough at times. So it is just a personal responsibility of every individual to be disciplined in that sense for not just the sake of self but also for others around.

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

I hear you and join you with same feelings. Also i believe we are not alone, am sure there are many more with same reservations while that technology gets more mature and stable enough for people to be confident enough to try.

Re: 5G on Cars
@mpouraryan Also, it appears that Uber recently decided to change its policy of having two engineers in the front seat of the self-driving cars at all times. It also appears they didn’t inform anyone of this decision.

Re: 5G on Cars
mpourayan  Yes, indeed, "mania" has arrived. It appears these automobile companies just want to be the first to roll the technology out without it being fully tested. Our lives are at risk because people are already driving these cars, but I refuse to have anything to do with them right now. You remind me of something my father said about driving: "You have to have eyes all around your head." I don't even feel secure when someone else is driving me, let alone a robot.

Re: 5G on Cars
vnewman Funny, I was thinking the same thing. If the robot wants the privilege to drive on our roads, then they must have a license.

Re: 5G on Cars
You would think so, right? I would guess there will soon be a state-issued “driverless” car license requirement coming soon to a DMV near you.

Re: 5G on Cars
When I was taught to drive, I was reminded that I had to be aware of all my surroundings--so the onus is on me--and Uber, Lyft, Ford, Telsa and all the other players have to make sure that they indeed "build" it into their alogrithims.    It is not a Question of if, but when--as Mania has truly arrived!!

Re: 5G on Cars
@vnewman I'm surprised that the technology didn't detect a person walking in front of the car. If it's going to be self-driving, it damn well be a better driver than a human, I would think. Driverless cars clearly are not ready for prime time.

Re: 5G on Cars
I saw the video and it is true she was jaywalking and it was extremely dark. You don’t see her until the very last second. In theory, there must be a way to account for this from a technology standpoint but it’s just not there yet. Since the victim was homeless - she likely was not aware or concerned about “driverless” cars. It seems, as pedestrians, we are going to have to be extra-vigilant about our own safety. I’m sure the Uber driver had a false sense of security that the car would take care of everything. Yikes.

Re: 5G on Cars
@Joe Stanganelli It's bad enough that I still see people in regular cars texting while driving, and they are totally distracted. I almost had a car plow into me the other day because I think the person was texting. The person in that Uber car probably felt complete confidence in that car, so much so, that they probably just thought no intervention would be needed.
