#477545 Driverless Cars

Posted by Ianb on 18 April 2015 - 01:01 PM

This fear of driver-less cars is totally irrational in my opinion. If you don't trust computers at all - then why fly on a plane? These days aircraft are piloted almost entirely by computer (autopilot), except for landing and take-off which the captain does manually (though this is still sometimes done via computer, just isn't as common). And it goes without saying that most aviation accidents occur due to pilot error.

 

Likewise, for car accidents, its usually down to human stupidity (drunk, texting, or just poor driving ability in general) in 95% of cases. Bring on driver-less cars, its the way forward. :)

 

Edit: The only 'downside' of driver-less cars that I can think of is that literally every single person (who can afford it) will probably get one, and the roads will be even more congested than they already are.

 

Yes and no, my dad was an airline pilot, he started off actually flying planes and obviously as time and aircraft progressed it did indeed become computerised (that's the yes part), however, should the **** hit the fan, that's when it's ideal to have a thinking mind up there.... especially one (or two - co pilot) who want to save their own backsides!.. engine failures, bad weather, mechanical problems can require judgement calls - Hence why pilots are training in simulators so often where they're bombarded with near impossible situations: Engine fails so you won't make it to your initial destination therefore you have to divert to one of two airfields, one of them is right on the limit of your fuel but it's a clear sunny day (so provided nothing goes wrong on the way and you don't !Removed! up the landing you'll be fine), the other you'll make with enough fuel to spare to go around numerous times but the weather is awful.. etc...  so whilst computers can do the calculations, and humans can introduce a large amount of error, it's nice to know someones trained to make major decisions... Hudson river landing wasn't carried out by computers...

 

Then indeed the aircraft around, some are more advanced than others - airbus' are very advanced. Boeing 737's are still 'stick flying' sorts of aircraft which rely less on computers...
