Autonomous Uber Car Involved in Accident | SEGMENT 1 | #284

Recently, an autonomous Uber car was involved in an accident in Arizona and they were temporarily suspended from being on the road while an investigation ensued. Automotive expert, BJ Killeen, tells us that the car was cleared of fault and the accident was actually caused by the vehicle that cut it off. While no injuries occurred, it did raise concern about the need for human interaction with the vehicle. The hope of engineers of self-driving cars is to minimize the number of accidents due to human error; at this point, autonomous cars still require a human to operate them. While this accident was a tiny setback for these autonomous cars, they will be perfected and we will see more of them in the near future.
