AAA: Many partially-automated driving systems may malfunction

Researchers with the safety group AAA have been testing active driver assistance systems that partially automate vehicles. The idea behind these systems is to reduce the number and severity of crashes by reducing the effect of human error. Unfortunately, AAA found that they are so unreliable that auto makers should consider limiting their use.

Don't assume your semi-automated driving system is 'hands free'

For decades, we've heard about the autopilot on airplanes. It takes off, cruises, corrects the pilot and lands the plane safely. It virtually takes over for the pilot -- although no one has yet suggested allowing planes to fly without pilots.

Safety groups urge improved safety standards for autonomous cars

Recently, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) requested public comments on proposed regulatory changes to the occupant protection rules for self-driving vehicles. Anyone can comment on the rule, and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and Highway Loss Data Institute recently submitted theirs based on years of research.

Would automated vehicles automatically drive better than humans?

Not necessarily, according to a recent study. Their ability to out-perform humans in terms of safety will depend not only on the accuracy and reliability of their sensors but also on how they weigh the importance of safety.
