UBER first and only fatality of self-driving vehicles on 18th of March 2018. Uber reportedly thinks its self-driving car killed someone because it ‘decided’ not to swerve. Our hopes it’s going to be the only and fatality of autonomous vehicles AV. John Krafcik, WAYMO’s CEO confirmed that his company’s self-driving software would “likely” have avoided the pedestrian death in which an Uber autonomous car was involved. On the other hand,
A very good illustration of how Artificial Intelligence (AI) can be used to save lives is the shark spotting drones. Westpac Little Ripper Lifesaver have worked closely with the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) to develop an Artificial Intelligence based system “Shark Spotter” that is able to detect sharks with high accuracy, in real-time. This technology allows for faster reaction times to potential shark threats at beaches. The software uses

As a pedestrian, UBER has failed me today. As a bicyclist, UBER has
Whether we call it Self-driving car, Autonomous Vehicle (AV) or Driver Less Auto, the technology is meant to save lives, reduce human error, decrease the number of accidents while efficiently moving people or goods using the transport system infrastructure. United State Department of Transport U.S. D.O.T defines 5 levels of vehicle automation: Level 0 being a Vehicle with Driver Warning System capability, it is supposed to provide guidance to the
