Mr. Frommer tells DroneLife, “
We want to preserve the steering wheel. We still feel that driving is fun. But maybe not while you are sitting in traffic. Our level 5 with assisted driving as an option gives drives the option of using the steering wheel or allowing the car to drive itself” .. “ The founder of Honda loved racing everything cars, motorcycles and we think that leaving the option gives people the choice.”
Self-Driving Car: An Autonomous Car We Want to Drive There is a huge amount of driver assist. For example, even when driving it would not let you turn off the road into a tree, it would self-brake if there was something in your way, or if another car got in your way. That means that local government administrators, policymakers, and planners are going to have to start preparing now for the infrastructure and policy changes that this transformational new economy will bring. With estimates now suggesting that by 2030 some 60 percent of cars on American highways will be self-driving, local governments are starting to take notice, because even if much of the infrastructure necessary for autonomous vehicles and electrified cars can be provided by private sources, AVs will still be driving on state and locally provisioned roads, and will require planning, zoning, permits, and supervision by local government managers and agencies.
If you try to dig into the lingo of a profession, the vocab frequently includes seemingly inscrutable alphabet soup-like acronyms. It’s hard enough to grasp the meaning of one acronym, let alone make sense of them when the acronyms are stacked up one after another, turning a sentence into a scree of capital letters and appearing to be a strange foreign language. To be clear, any such vocabulary does serve a quite useful purpose. One vital purpose consists of being able to have coherent discourse, trying to ensure that if one person speaks of a rose, others all have an in-common understanding of what the word rose means. If one expert assumes that a rose means a rose, while a fellow colleague thinks a rose means an apple, the odds are that any discussion will breakdown right away as neither one agrees with the other.
