Is it a human that programmes the robot? ;) https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/599wnz/germany-has-created-the-worlds-first-ethical-guidelines-for-driverless-cars Largely it isn't a human that programs the car. They write a program that can learn (to drive), and then encourage it to do so. T...

Re: 'Advanced' - a solicitor writes

Always best to tone down the positioning on a bike if being followed closely by a car. It can/does cause confusion. Some may even think you are trying to block them in some way. If you are being followed closely, perhaps you are holding them up, and should cooperate and let them overtake you? Of co...

Re: 'Advanced' - a solicitor writes

I've expected witnesses to think I'm drunk when I'm merely dodging potholes and sunken drains :evil: As for court, I thought we were supposed to get a jury of our peers, so really it shouldn't be a jury of anyone unless they're also advanced trained. It's an interesting precedent for autonomous cars...

Re: "High risk" roads

During training I used to deliberately steer clear of 'biker' roads - usually full of other bikers, many RLAT, often a high police presence too. Plenty of other great roads. For similar reasons I avoid the Evo triangle. I also don't like sharing the location of /my/ roads on other forums, lest they...

Re: "High risk" roads

Dont particularly like the C&F too may vehicles exceeding the competence of the user. Many think its a badge of honor to have traveled along it. There are some bits that can catch out anyone not actually paying attention, especially if they are already exceeding their ability to read the road a...

"High risk" roads

Re: Call to fit automated speed limiting technology to cars

I loathe the prospect of ISA - but if it operated only in red ring limits, and allowed me to set a percentage leeway then instead of loathing it I might actually welcome it Why on earth would it only operate in red rings and allow some leeway? It's the limit, not a guide :nono: :roll: Unless the sc...

Re: Call to fit automated speed limiting technology to cars

Yes, as GTR says, it's dumbing down. Sadly, the 'intelligent' approach you would prefer isn't going to happen, is it? No, it isn't. Doesn't mean I'm wrong :P My approach would also lead to massively reduced congestion (as I'd remove all the drivers from the roads who don't want to pay attention to ...

Re: Call to fit automated speed limiting technology to cars

Although . . . if I were to suggest that drink drivers, drivers using the phone, drugged drivers, etc. were all to be forced to drive slower, wouldn't that be a benefit? ;) As a matter of interest, which speed limits do you want to be allowed to exceed? "The device can be disabled at the touch...
