The biggest what-if is the human driver. Humans are far more unpredictable than machines. Interestingly, the biggest technical challenge could potentially occur at the beginning, when the machines are in the minority, and therefore have to deal with millions of unpredictable humans.

I don't think autonomous cars wil ever be "common." There are too many situations in driving that sesnsors could not respond to. There is always the unexpected happening that requires a drivers response that is unique. I don't think sensors and sensor programs could handle the large number of "what ifs" that can happen while driving.

How many times does the systems collapse. So eventually people with high prestige will be at high risk by sitting back in the car and let the car b driven by it self. It is not like planes where traffic is 2 low and computers handle the flight even lands as per programmed but will it pull up some emergency landing and emergency stopping.?

Of course I was think of a car that actually can drive itself...

And I was just riffing on all the goofy stuff that this might lead to and settled on those two to post.

But since you asked... I'll do another...

At what age does junior get his own car? I mean... he won't need to drive so the whole age/licence thing won't be a problem.

@Ralphy – does this mean we don't have a manual way of overriding the drive? I'm sure they need to come up with something in case of emergency.

@Trenth – That's the reason why we don't still see it on roads.  Car manufacturers will not want to take the risk of safety.

@dstroz – Does this mean you still want to live more. Lol

Same here I will just give it a try for the sake of curiosity, but will never want to use it continuously for any long drives.

The American motorcycle is enjoying a mini-renaissance today, as the recent success of bike manufacturers Harley-Davidson, Indian Motorcycle, and Victory Motorcycles, among others, amply indicate.
The question of whether engineers could have foreseen the shortcut maintenance procedures that led to the crash of American Airlines Flight 191 in 1979 will probably linger for as long as there is an engineering profession.
More than 35 years later, the post-mortem on one of the country’s worst engineering disasters appears to be simple. A contractor asked for a change in an original design. The change was approved by engineers, later resulting in a mammoth structural collapse that killed 114 people and injured 216 more.
If you’re an embedded systems engineer whose analog capabilities are getting a little bit rusty, then you’ll want to take note of an upcoming Design News Continuing Education Center class, “Analog Design for the Digital World,” running Monday, Nov. 17 through Friday, Nov. 21.
It’s time once again for the Annual Design News Science and Engineering Movie Contest, which names no winners, awards no prizes, isn’t really a contest, and appears every three years or so.
