Quote from: Michael Rolls on April 20, 2022, 06:07:39 PMI do wonder if anyone on government has the slightest claim to joined up thinking. When/if we are subjected to self-driving cars on our roads, apparently it will be perfectly OK for the 'driver' to watch TV whilst the robot takes control. Visualise a long journey on a smoothly moving motorway. Driver decides to watch TV. Now, and I know that I am by no means alone in this, if a TV programme is less than riveting, there is a good chance I will doze off. Then what if the robot needs me to take over? Absolute madness.Mike

If they require intervention from a human then they aren't autonomous and should not be so classed. They just have improved cruise control. Given that allowing the nominated driver to watch TV is indeed cretinous. I just thought it was hilarious that they can't use a phone though.
