Default Re: Reality Check: Fully autonomous cars are a l-o-n-g time away

Another area where this technology could be deployed is long-distance transportation by trucks. This was recently in the news as below:

Uber and Anheuser-Busch Make First Autonomous Trucking Beer Delivery

"Transportation experts predict the earliest applications of autonomous technology will be in self-driving trucks, not cars. The technology is best suited to the relative predictability of long hauls on highways, rather than busy city streets with many distractions."

RC Bhargava says:

Quote:
Maruti Suzuki Chairman R C Bhargava says such autonomous vehicles will not work in India as "nobody obeys any of the driving rules".
Quote:
"I think no technology will work here when nobody obeys any of the driving rules, no nobody obeys any of the systems which are there. How will you devise a technology that will predict customer behaviour, nobody can predict customer behaviour?" he said.

Contrary to what some believe, I think we will see some form of autonomous cars introduced in various parts of the world in the next 5-10 years on a very large scale.
