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

Except no-one understands how those heuristics work, or that they can be easily (dangerously?) confused https://www.theregister.co.uk/2017/10/30/fool_ai_image_classifier_by_changing_single_pixel/ So a sudden spec of dirt on a camera could have significant effects ? The more I read about these vehic...

Re: GBOL & DSG Gearbox

Potential thread hijack (sorry) Why are people still talking about BGOL and implying if you do it it will kill you so must be avoided at all costs? In modern cars predominantly front wheels drive all have abs and weight sensitive braking bias. You are no longer removing drive from the rear wheels an...

Re: Telematics - feedback and findings

“What young people need is more help in understanding where it is inappropriate to driven near the limit.” That bit I agree with but a black box is not going to help that. Yesterday I had the unfortunate experience of being driven by potential son in law. I though I did very well to appear reasonab...

Re: 20 mph limits - safer?

Interesting that council justify the spend as" we are spending for improved safety" then when its not working and it has been proven to be more dangerous they can not find the money to spend for Safety now? So are these blanket 20 limits about safety or is there some hidden agenda? Would a...

Re: Call to fit automated speed limiting technology to cars

So what do you do for the bozo who thinks the speed limit is the safe speed and runs wide on a left hand bend killing several people coming the other way.

Road safety should be Education, Engineering then Enforcement in that order. :soap:

Re: Masters assessment

+1 Plus, he said that there was no point whatsoever in developing observation. All he needed to look at was the distance he could stop in at his speed. so travelling at 30mph, he only needed to know what was happening 75 feet away. Scary when ADIs are so poor its no wonder the general standard of d...

Re: 'Advanced' - a solicitor writes

Hi Off topic but did you see the Guy Martin program on autonomous vehicles? one short clip was on no win situations, someone will die the decision is who. So at least someone now recognises that even the proposed super safe vehicles may end up having to decide if they kill their occupants or someone...

Re: Masters assessment

When I give spoken commentary I always slow down from my normal pace, usually as I am giving it for the benefit of an associate and I want them to have a chance to see what I am looking at and not put them at risk by diverting their concentration. Sometimes I give commentary from a following positio...

Re: "High risk" roads

Perhaps the solution would be to ban all :biker: from using the C&F road? :nono: We used to use this road a lot with associates at one time but so many cars were crossing the centre line on bends that we took a conscious decision to avoid it. As for the speed limit, yes you can average 50 mph o...
