Chevy Cruise AV

The newest look in GM's fully autonomous interior of Chevy Cruise AV, Nothing to do but stare at the center infotainment screen and out the windshield. There are no visible means of manual control reassuring all of its occupants they have handled 'everything;' no human error, harmful emissions, traffic jams, and inequality (physical handicaps). I'm still from the old Luddite generation, needs some control, thank you https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_c...&v=MvP82IsGqNc

Another (GM) headlong rush into stupidity...gotta 'get there' before the others.

Wonder if these vehicles will come with built in drug sniffers. You know that transporting drugs will be one of the first things they are used for. Buy them under an assumed name, load'em up and send them on their way. No one to get caught and you only lose a minimal amount of money if the car gets impounded.

I would guess that autonomous cars will also eventually have a remote shut down feature in case they get out of control. Wonder who will have access to that remote shut down control.

Maybe it still can provide some driving interface for human override through the touchscreen, even though it might not be the best solution as some other physical interface (even a videogame controller). Honestly I don't believe autonomous rides to become mainstream in such a relatively short term.

Q: How good is DEA at "profiling" a self-driving, no-passenger vehicle?

Well, soon as a few crash and sue the piss out of GM maybe this will be put on hold for about another 40 years while the tech matures. Even then, there should ALWAYS be the ability for the occupants to override the autonomous system.

LOL I was talking about something very similar last night with my wife, what if someone was using one of these to transport illegal substances and or human trafficking etc.

Even though nowadays there is an effort to make everything as dumbproof as possible, there is some extent that not even all the electronic nannies meant to limit human input (or in this case eliminate it at all) would become effective on that matter. And if we look at aircraft, most of the so-called "autonomy" provided by autopilots and flight-directors rely on external inputs such as VOR and the transponders, not to mention that airfields usually have a more strictly controlled access compared to streets, thus reducing the amount of risks.

Sure, human factor is always quite risky. And since all that AI is directly (or in a foreseeable future going to be indirectly) developed by humans, it's quite natural to fear that some dumbness traits may eventually make its way into autonomous tech...
