Social acceptability for self-driving cars

Social acceptability is an issue for those wishing to buy a self-driving car and others who will share the road as numerous automated and autonomous vehicles have been in high-profile accidents.

There is a risk of rejection of this technology if the public is not considered in the decisions about the introduction and adoption of self-driving vehicles. Without collaboration on how to make the car safe and provide evidence of that safety, this project will not gain traction.

Elon Musk thinks his company Tesla will have fully autonomous cars available by the end of 2020.

However, there are some fundamental challenges to the safe introduction of these cars before they can be on our roads.

Once an autonomous car is on the road, it will continue to learn. It will detect new objects and be subject to software updates.

The system should continue to be just as safe as its previous version and not forget previously learned behaviors. It should be able to show th...

Currently, there is no widely accepted and agreed basis for ensuring that the machine learning algorithms used in the vehicles are safe.
