A Lexus which was started remotely was involved in an accident whilst killing a man in the
process; it was mistakenly started by a technical glitch and rammed into the man standing next to the car, the man later died on his way to the hospital as a result of severe injuries sustained in the accident. The highlight of this incident has been that nobody is responsible for causing the accident and yet a man has lost his life, the onus of the blame is on technology while at the same time nobody has staked claim to confront the same. The problems with autonomous technology is that they are good but unreliable under various circumstances and thus a lot of autopilot projects which are powered by Artificial intelligence have been rolled back from major implementation across the world and especially in the United States where it has been seen as a root cause for a lot of accident when employed under normal real-life conditions. The concept of helping the lives of driving folks is Nobel and deserves appreciation, but at the same point of time, one has to vary of the possibility of a technical glitch or a remote bug that can alter the systems completely without any physical evidence of it being present until the time of absolute disaster.
The policy front, as well as the developing stakeholders, need to confront all the possibilities before rolling out autopilots on full scale specially designed for road traffic conditions and the unpredictable nature of the traffic that traps the technical advancements in a blurry optional array thus making it inefficient for deployment on roads as of this moment in the development curve of the technology.
