Re: Hard decision but Mercedes are probably right
"Basically, If I was buying an autonomous car, I would want it to protect ME. (humans are ultimately selfish, no matter what you say) and I would certainly not want it to be second-guessing my life over what ultimately could be just a paper bag. And humans are the customer, so this makes perfect commercial sense."
But then what happens when the person the car is approaching is your wife or kid suddenly emerging from a blind approach on a noisy, rainy day for some emergency? Now it's personal AND a situation where you could morally be inclined to go "them not I".
