Self driving cars don’t need to be 100% autonomous in all possible scenarios in order to be useful. Self-driving reliably on the highway? Hell yes I’d take that (just think of trucks - having a driver to the highway is so much cheaper than having someone drive it cross-country). Self driving reliably in a few major cities? Oh, you mean cheap robotic taxi?





Spot on. This is our approach at Ghost Locomotion - L3 is pretty darn good, and highways are actually pretty standards driven, unlike local roads or cities.

I agree with you it's just as I said - it's not what we've been sold and autopilot on highway is kinda boring.
