Autonomous vehicles, a policy in the making

The concept of autonomous vehicles isn’t something that hasn’t been debated or discussed upon very often and passionately as those not in favor of the technological advancement have sighted the inability of the artificial intelligence backed machines to exhibit emotions and the motor controls of that of a human which eventually leads to the chaotic outfall of the situation, also sightings of a norm that if the accidents are caused by the AI, the responsible party would be who? The driver who paid for the service or the company that provided the car and it was their responsibility to ensure that such incidents never took place or the technology provider to the company who helped the automotive manufacturer build the technical expertise around the technology so as to be implemented in the machines and their usage described as efficient and lifesaving.

The contradictions in the words for and against this policy decision have been a bone of contention between the benign and have thus brought in a lot of flak towards recognizing that the concept of autonomous vehicles is practically conceivable if the whole system gets to drive on autonomous for the intervention of human activities on roads will fray and off-track the principles of autonomous vehicles in all its propensity which has been a leading backlash in all of the discussions held worldwide.

The European Union is yet to take its final call on the green nod for the technology to be pre-conceived in the technical arena of the vehicles act which has cast a grey shadow on the emerging technology as something that we may need in the future, but we don’t want at the present stage of either the development or that of the road safety and propriety norms.
