Trouble with his tweet-continence
Elon Musk seems to share Donald Trump's problems with tweet-continence. Again it looks like he's overpromised.
They will get there eventually, but what's clearly needed is more baby steps. Maybe the next one is safely disengaging from autonomous driving even if the driver is asleep or unwell - or drunk! This would obviously sometimes involve parking after an assessment of risks. Once this is in the bag, they can take on the easiest roads first, like clear or slow-running motorways, and then disengage as predicted conditions get more risky.
Remember that the Autopilot that's already installed can't be bad as the collisions we've heard about are fairly low when viewed besides the number of miles driven with Autopilot engaged. Remember also that, despite what people may say, we don't need perfection - we do need the autonomous driving to be demonstrably safer than human driving.
It can be done. Maybe not in a year, but not too many years. I'm confident that I will be relieved from the drudgery of motorway tailback driving within the next five years. And that's one of the most important things we could most of us do without.
