Since a Tesla can't tell the difference between a white tractor trailer and a bright sun I think i will just do my own driving.

I am looking forward to it. When I get to be old I can still travel wherever I wish to go. Being trapped in a S&B is not for me.

I know people who can't tell the difference between their butt and a hole in the ground, they have a driver license and are allow to drive. You can fix a machine, you can't fix stupid.

"Self Driving RVs - Are you ready?"

I'm ready, but I don't think they are.....

But the first airplanes took a while to perfect as well....

I can see some teenager hacking into my RV and sending me to Detroit.

Personally I don't see that model Tesla as a car designed like those of Google and others. The Tesla in fact requires the humans hands on the steering wheel, something the driver recklessly ignored to his own peril. To blame that car in a human-responsible accident is confusing the issue of true self-driving cars.

I guess back in the days of those first horseless carriages, the same fear and confusion was abound when the first death in a horseless carriage occurred.

If this is an old thread, why was it listed in the Recent Discussions list? Anyways, with the recent pedestrian death in AZ, it is still a current topic. Anyone who has seen the video of that lady walking in front of the car can tell that no HUMAN would have been able to avoid her either. And there WAS a human driver in that car. Just recently there was a hit and run in Green Bay that resulted in a pedestrian fatality. Did that make the national news? No. When they take your keys away from old age, you'll be glad there ARE self-driving RV's. :^)

I 100 % disagree with you about that pedestrian accident. It looked very avoidable and the self driving car didnt react at all.

This technology will be shelved after a few more fatalities. Self driving technology is only good in the air....... to many factors on the ground......

Couldn't disagree with you more. It's here to stay. It will be a few more years before it's available for wide use but it's coming, like it or not. In the end we all will be better for it.

I like the self braking , and the cruse control radar , Cadillac has hands free driving now. I think the car should detect if the driver is a idiot and shut it down, speed and stupid has to be fixed maybe self driving is a good thing and get some of these idiots off the road

I find it weird we demand perfection from machines driving cars but not from humans driving cars.

Computers don't drive drunk, road rage, speed or intentionally engage in reckless behaviour.
