I was going to post about the latest autopilot issue but  this would not have been nice enough.

I am sure the police are to blame.

Depends on where the police car was parked.

Autopilot is also to blame, for not seeing and avoiding the police car.

Driver is also to blame, by not taking control when he/she should have.

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!

This.

99.9 percent of auto accidents are driver error.

The problem is whether we expect autopilots to be as good as humans or, better.  Humans drive like idiots and crash all the time.  Is it possible for humans to create something better than them? A perfect  driver in all conditions?

"A *mariachi band played* while customers received instructions in an industrial yard. Then they took turns shooting flames four feet (1.2 metres) long, reducing impaled marshmallows to blackened cinders."   Yes, I too love a good traditional Mexican melody whilst roasting marshmallows with a flamethrower near an abandoned factory. Sounds like these guys were on that wacky tobacky (which they probably lit with their flamethowers..):facepalm:

"The German government has ordered car maker Daimler to recall 238,000 vehicles in Germany after they were found to be fitted with illegal software that masks diesel emissions.

Across Europe a total of 774,000 diesel vehicles contain "defeat devices" and Daimler said it would recall them all.

The diesel versions of the Mercedes C-Class, Vito and GLC models are the main ones affected, the ministry said.

Daimler said it would refit the software but denied any wrongdoing.

It comes three years after VW admitted having fitted "cheat" devices in vehicles that made their engines appear less polluting than they actually were."

I don’t doubt that.   :tu:
It’s interesting to watch the shenanigans that these companies get up to.

(Not so funny if you have an affected car, of course)

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)
