Here is a recent article for autonomous driving: Uber offers self-driving car rides in San Francisco — and California threatens legal action While I am excited I see more and more autonomous driving happening I am upset that some companies aren't following the intention of guidelines. What does everyone think about this? Uber in my mind really goes out of their way to avoid following the law by sidestepping it. People in SF seeing their cars running red lights will probably cause people to not wanting this passed in legislation. In addition they are blaming the drivers and my roommate in college has a PhD in fault tolerant software development and he thinks that you shouldn't rely on the person behind the wheel to stop the car. Uber is blaming the person but isn't at the same time stating if the self-driving software ran the light and the driver failed to stop it or if the driver was actually driving the car at the time. I could imagine sitting there and the car decides to go and you stop it. The car could be a full car length into the intersection before you react. On the other side of the coin the person who posted the video of the car running the red light is a taxi driver who has an incentive to be against the self-driving cars.
