Another hurdle passed?
Driverless Cars Get a Learner's Permit From The Federal Government
In the US - yes, but here it may be a while. There is not even discussion about it at a gov. level that I have heard.
Back in november last year the SA government held a special media event involving closing a freeway to let 3 volvo drivers showoff some "world first" hands free steering (yes after we all got 7) complete with safety vests and hard hats, declaring that SA now leads the way in regulatory changes for autonomous cars, and that we are open for manufacturers of autonous cars. It was a media frenzy.
Like everything from the SA government, it was all talk and zero action, and we continue to trail.
There is this trial in Perth about to start
Perhaps WA could also lead the way and trial summoning of our cars on private property?
And Victoria is leading the way to ... to ...
So a bus can carry 15 passengers without a driver, yet we cannot stand behind our car and reverse it on our private driveway.
Well at least one good thing if it went ahead is that it would be hard to then justify prohibiting Sumons, or even Summons V2 whatever that may prove to be.
What you think the nanny government will be consistant? Cars are required to have seatbelts, buses arent. Plenty of people are injured in bus crashes, but the government own those and either dont want the expense, or want a faster turnover of passengers. If you have a pool you must fence it. Government build an equally deep pond in a park, no fence required. There are seemingly endless examples of government hypocracy that are generally dangerous on the government side.
Point taken... perhaps a dose of optimism and wishful thinking on my part.
