S*** is getting real, brothers.

Waymo is moving their safety drivers to the back-seat, with just a pull-over button.

Plans are to ditch completely them in a few months.

NuTonomy has been saying it would have completely driverless taxis in Singapore early next year...it'll be interesting to see who gets it done first.

The challenges of public autonomy became apparent during a test drive this author experienced at the VivaTechnology trade show in Paris last June. As the Navya shuttle navigated a closed-off portion of the venue’s parking lot, several curious onlookers wandered into the vehicle’s path.

The bus dutifully stopped for pedestrians and then proceeded. However, when one older, particularly inquisitive man came too close, the shuttle stopped and then started beeping at him. Although the pedestrian was a few inches clear of the vehicle, the shuttle’s cautious programming kept the vehicle stationary while it continued to beep at the pedestrian. It created a comical, Chaplinesque scene, with the grumpy pedestrian waving and yelling at us to proceed while we yelled back at him from inside the vehicle trying to get him to move farther away. On public roads, faced with people trying to keep to a schedule, such encounters might not be so amusing.

The lane departuere feature on my Subaru craps out a lot in the rain and dark. I don't think we're as close as people think.

Slightly off topic - I recently saw an ad for Oracle's "Autonomous Data Base." They even called it self-driving

Apparently it updates its own data without human intervention.
