Another Autonomous Driving Reality Check

As details emerge from the crash of an Ethiopian Airlines 737 max aircraft, we are reminded about the limitations of autopiloted flight control systems that have been in use for literally decades.

Why the general public and our government do NOT see the deadly hazards posed by thousands of autonomously driven cars on America’s roads, is anyone’s guess. Here’s another example (in some ways analogous to the 737 max crashes) of what happens when you combine autonomous vehicle control with poorly trained and inattentive human operators. This one features a Tesla Model 3 crashing into a highway median.
