Re: Safety systems are there to be gamed...

I've used a lump of metal to hold down the throttle on an HGV. Does that make me a gamer?

Although it was parked off-road and I had to keep the battery charged because of equipment working. Quite boring, really :(

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

So a sudden spec of dirt on a camera could have significant effects ? The more I read about these vehicles the scarier they seem. That added to the belief by many that these vehicle will bring about traffic utopia. Did you read the article I posted a download link, of the police driver who saw a so...

Next you'll be insisting that you want to see a cashier on a checkout in the supermarket ;)

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

I think I've posted the YT link before of US fire service driver training using simulations, where scenarios are based on real incidents. In a way it could be argued that 'higher/better's AD is really better prediction. Of course, it could be argued that a computer system might be better at consiste...

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

L5 vehicles will only ever be autonomous.

Looking at 'now', is there any external indication of adaptive cruise control, auto braking, self park, etc.?

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

Unfortunately, the reality of AVs, as I see it, is that manufacturers are producing nothing more than electronic versions of the worst of the driving public. Well, quite. Or at least the average member of the public. My problem with a lot of them is that they are basing ML decisions on data acquire...

Google for levels of autonomous vehicles. L5 won't have any controls, 'off' will be for when it's in for maintenance ;)

Re: GBOL & DSG Gearbox

Press both pedals together in a dual clutch and many will sound a warning and even go into limp home mode until you restart them. If you must use left foot braking you need to be very good at it and only use one pedal at a time (another form of separation). Can't remember whether I posted this: a c...
