Re: Technological Stagnation

Yeah, if a driver slams on the gas pedal, the system should take that as "get the hell out of here" command.

A computer's not going to be able to handle every emergency, but it's going to do a better job of handling most emergencies than a human ever could. The emergencies where it's likely to fail are ones that humans are at least as bad at avoiding, if not worse. Poor traction situations are probably the best example of just how bad humans are at coping with dangerous conditions.
