How far still to go?
For anyone interested on where Uber is up to from Uber ATG!
A sobering comparison with how well non-autonomous vehicles (that’s us as drivers) perform:
Australian drivers - one fatality for every 200million km driven. (2017 report as 2018 is not quite done yet, however it looks to be an improvement on 2017.)
Despite what autonomous operation of vehicles promise, Waymo (Google/Alphabet) has only recently boasted reaching 10M miles or approx 16M km. And that’s test miles including operator intervention along the way, plus the daily bingle?
There is also a recent article on www.businessinsider.com that is headlined,
“21 Nov 2018 · Tesla, Uber, Waymo, Cruise face autonomous-driving reality check”.
It sits behind a paywall if anyone is interested in an objective look that suggests the short term prospects of autonomous vehicles are being over sold.
