Will your driverless car be willing to kill you to save the lives of others? | Science ... - 0 views

  •  
    "In one survey, 76% of people agreed that a driverless car should sacrifice its passenger rather than plough into and kill 10 pedestrians.

And the view held even when people were asked to imagine themselves or a family member travelling in the car."

  •  
    "But what will robot cars be programmed to do when there's lots of them on the roads, and they're networked with one another? We know what we as individuals would like. My car should take as its Prime Directive: "Prevent my passengers from coming to harm."

Israeli Company Mobileye Developing Driverless Cars | Technology News - 0 views

  •  
    ""The technology is also useful in cases where the driver loses consciousness and has let go of the steering wheel. If such an event occurs, the car will independently pull over. Temporary control of the car is the second wave of driver perception-enhancement - while we are still on the first wave, which culminates with the car's ability to break on its own in case of emergency. Therefore, the next phase is automated driving, the instant you let go of the wheel.""
