Re: Why autonomous cars won't be able to drive properly...

So will they know that, for example, a Toyota Yaris is a vehicle beloved of ladies of advancing years (except when it isn't), look at the one in front of the oncoming ambulance, check if it's driven by such a driver, and factor that into the likely behaviour of that vehicle?

I want my autonomous car to drive like Andy Morrison. If it's possible to write that style into rules, then it may well b...

Re: RoSPA consultation on 'banning' off-side positioning

We've already had the RoSPA magazine telling people H&T and - by association - rev matching is dangerous and can lead to you being upside down in a ditch and then, if you live, in court. That's not the only thing they've started spouting lately, either. Sometimes I despair... Was that in the &q...

Re: VW Trailer Assist

I've had 10 minutes trying to reverse a trailer between some cones and have to admit to being an abject failure. I'm sure with practice I could be just about competent, but it plays havoc with your brain (mine, anyway).

Re: Survey

Done, although I had to resist my tendency to deliberately bias my answers to suit the preconceptions in the questions. Unfortunately, all it showed is that my beliefs don't align perfectly with any political party, which is how I answered the allegiance question. So probably the equivalent of a spo...
