    Using 5G in the city is fine - but there are lots of black spots in the country side ( were some people think the poor live ) - what will happen to a tesla, that loses 5G and cannot get updates from other cars? I guess we are back to blind driving

      Sorry any system or NN or whatever that is automated, should never be released, if it can during a normal situation ie a person crossing the road at night, will proceed to kill the person- that's just not an improvement.

      I think most humans, would have braked earlier - the uber car had the advantage of lair dar, so it can 'SEE' in the dark, unlike a human. Even, when I watched the video, I could see the person/bike - I would have braked ( if I was paying attention ) however the auto pilot was far too late

      As Musk said, he would accept that computers will make mistakes, he hopes about a third of the current road accidents can achieved. Lets see if that achieved   The problem is computers cannot not even understand a basic picture or outside view, that's why Captcha, is used in a lot of places. I as human can read a Captcha, I see the letters in different sizes and position with a different orientation, and I can tell you what the letter is - a computer generally cannot - that's why its used to stop computers getting into accounts etc.   People say the uber, death last year, because the computer, could not identify a woman pushing a bicycle, so it used ignored the threat  and ran her over. Underlying what I am saying, computers cannot recognize objects from different angles, lighting conditions  and therefore know what is safe and what is not - people can

    I still think it will take a long time for e-cars to come to the same price as dacia sander at 7000 Euro, Even second hand e-cars cost a lot more than that ...   While there is an ICE car available at a much lower price, most people will still buy them, the Government is going to have to pursued people to buy e-cars through law change.

      ok, which ever scheme is used hopefully fair to all groups,  has to cut the pollution levels in bigger cities, its not acceptable to the poor people in bigger cities to be breathing in all kinds of crap

    Its required under EU, that the levels are below a certain number - I think it was 50 of something.   Germany ( and other country's ) are ignoring this EU law, on the grounds that they do not want to be nasty to poor people. As you can see its a subject which some people can get quite up tight about.   Reading about this figure of 50, all lot of people seem think the limit should be higher anyway.   I sometimes look at this webpage   it shows a lot of data about the air quality, most places on earth, it very rarely goes above 50 in Munich and not for long - compare it with China/ south east asia and they regularly get 800 +.

    Sure, I think poor people should be supported, in various ways, welfare programs etc  - but I am not sure I support the right of poor people to pollute the air we all breath to the point were I could die earlier from it - just because they are poor.   I would go the way of banning cars new ICE cars with larger engines, limit say to 1 liter, and improving overall fuel effiencey,  which over time, would cause pollution to drop ( ok over a 10 year period  ), and its not going to hurt the poor people directly - it would more effect the average/rich person - who can and do buy cars with higher emssions.
