literally everything about autonomous cars is bad, and that's honestly remarkable because you'd at least think we'd bumble into doing something good through the research being put into them

@alyaza
They're not even fun.
It's like the automatic gearbox: worse in every way except for human laziness.

@alyaza it seems like they at least have the potential to be much safer if they were being developed in more careful conditions ☹️

@scanlime @alyaza
Uber's cars seem to be awful for this. Seen the news on the accident?

@jospanner @alyaza yeah, i am not saying Uber's thing is any good, just that it's more a problem with priorities than an intrinsic issue with the idea of automated driving

@alyaza they brake automatically now that’s pretty good

@alyaza Mapillary has a toolchain for autonomous cars that is available for OpenStreetMap use. I certainly wouldn't trust a car driving down the road exclusively based on automated detections given its high misidentification rate. But it is high enough that it's helping me build a better transit map of my city than the city's official GTFS data.
