Re: Pedestrian killed by self driving car.

"The vehicle operator is relied on to intervene and take action. The system is not designed to alert the operator." It's totally pointless then. :roll: Nigel. Possibly the opposite! The system learns from those occasions where the safety driver intervenes. Don't Tesla have autopilot perma...

Re: On Potholes and Positioning

And despite the appalling state of our roads, Cambs council can still find money for pointless speed limit reductions :bash: :bash: :bash:
For instance changing this short link section to a 40. How much money have they pissed away on that? :soap:

Initial NTSB report out: https://www.ntsb.gov/news/press-releases/Pages/NR20180524.aspx I find this section particularly worrying "According to Uber emergency braking maneuvers are not enabled while the vehicle is under computer control to reduce the potential for erratic vehicle behavior. The ...

Re: Clutch - heel & toe
