    The problem technically is “edge cases”, or the unexpected – a traffic cone in the road, a cow that won’t move, so on. Rare on an everyday basis, but they happen often enough, and the vehicle has no idea what to do. They’ve gotten cars ‘almost’ all the way there, it’s just that humans are still better at handling the unexpected, and the unexpected appears to be much more difficult for these companies to solve.

    It might be that AGI (or closer to it) is needed instead of just ChatGPT level AI, but this opens a whopper of a can of worms.

    Musk has said every year since about 2019 that self-driving is a year or so away:

    But, he and others are in the business of technological hype. They get better share returns by overpromising.

    We have a Tesla Y. I paid $8K for the full self driving program. Absolutely the worst money I ever spent. It hits the brakes while passing semis and fails to stop at stop signs–even T-intersections. I don’t trust it or use it at all. Other than that, it’s a great car.

      Did Elon at least give you a blue check mark?

        I hear there is a bumper sticker (must get one) that says “I bought it before I knew who he was.”

    Tony Seba claims full self-driving will crash car ownership, and transform city transport. Instead of streets jammed with commuters, we’d have streets jammed with robotaxis going both ways, full and empty. Or will they all be down in the tunnels Musk’s digging ? (sarc)
