Real autonomous cars are far different than the adaptive cruise and lane assist version we have today.



Because they turned off the safety features?

Before you watch I'll give you a chance to guess what didn't happen.

That looked so much different than how any person would’ve handled it. You can tell it was a computer system. It caught the slide so sharply. A pro driver could’ve saved it but it would’ve been less mechanical looking. An average driver would’ve duffed it right into that guardrail.

I guess this is the right place for this. FedEx is testing an autonomous delivery robot but claims it isn't planned to replace humans Right, because with autonomous trucks and delivery robots there would be such high demand for a human worker.

Next in line to lose their jobs, grocery workers. Walmart has deployed these to keep track of inventory and it's not too far of a jump to see a robot restocking the shelves.

Relevant excerpt:

“Reportedly, both Waymo vans being harassed by Tang were controlled manually during the time of the accident, meaning that neither vehicle was operating under any form of autonomy.”
