Drivers are not ready to give over the wheel even when +37,000 people died in motor vehicle accidents on US highways in 2016 —most of the cases due to some kind of human error. There is a concern (or fear?) if autonomous cars and trucks are ready to leave the test roads and start driving wide-scale together with human traffic: Are autonomous vehicles safer than human drivers?   Self-driving vehicles are indeed not perfect. Several car makers, technology companies, and startups testin ...
Autonomous Vehicles are driving towards zero accidents: being involved in fewer crashes, getting less injuries, and possibly saving lives. However, most comparisons between driverless vehicles and human drivers have been uneven... and maybe unfair.   Even when statistics show that above 90% of incidents in the US involve some form of human errors or deficiencies, there is not enough data to accurately assess if automation might be better than humans at not-crashing. Reliable crash rates sh ...
Artificial Intelligence (AI) experts are fixing their expectations about the availability of autonomous vehicles and how it might take several years before self-driving systems can genuinely avoid accidents. Full autonomy seems closer than ever as the self-driving vehicles keep getting better, but the reality is autonomous technologies are currently struggling with the real world. The delay could place fully self-driving vehicles further than we realize —putting them out of reach for an en ...
Technology development for Autonomous Vehicles is moving from functionality to performance to reliability. However, current self-driving cars and trucks need to reach stringent safety and security levels before going broad, as strict reliability standards are critical to guarantee human protection and to drive public acceptance of the autonomous technologies.   Defined by the ISO 26262 standard, the Automotive Safety Integrity Levels (ASIL) are a rigorous risk classification scheme for sel ...
