Canucks wary but hopeful on driverless cars.
Most Canadians are wary of self-driving cars, according to latest research released by the Canadian Automobile Association.
An autonomous vehicle is one capable of sensing its environment and navigating without human input.
Nearly two-thirds of Canadians say they wouldn’t feel safe inside a driverless car. Some concerns include vehicle hacking, data theft or accountability in the event of an accident.
However, 57% of Canadians believe within a decade the technology will advance to a point where they would trust a self-driving vehicle.

“Canadians clearly see the potential. We are just not there yet,” the CAA said in a release.
The CAA said 81% of Canadians say clear, enforced rules are needed to protect the privacy of personal information collected by vehicles.
The Insurance Bureau of Canada says there needs to be recommendations implemented for drivers and insurers for the future of autonomous vehicles.
Self-driving car still a thing … but we’re several years from it being reality

Driverless cars now OK on Ontario roads
Although there may be fewer human error collisions, there will be potential accidents because of malfunctions in the computer system of the self-driving vehicle.
The IBC says there needs to be a single insurance policy covering driver negligence and liability related to the automated vehicle technology.
“Legislation needs to reflect a world where vehicles have more automated features,” said Ryan Stein, of IBC, adding it will be difficult to determine human diver fault or a product liability claim.

lol

the IBC needs to establish a reason for insurance to even exist once human drivers are removed from the formula.

Continued provincial sales tax revenues, improper maintenance, etc.

Despite the title of the article, the fact is the technology is still at least 30 years away where it will be to the point where millions of vehicles can safely move about autonomously. Who knows what the attitudes towards the tech will be in 30 years or so.

Last year Tesla racked up over a billion miles on auto drive.

Google drives about 25K miles a day on auto drive, and has since 2009?

The technology is here today, and has been here for quite awhile.

The road block now is not technological.

Oh for... The tech isn't solid enough to have millions and millions of cars on the road. Jesus Christ, do you not understand anything? Not to mention the accidents and deaths that have resulted while this tech has been on the road.

But yeah, I'll listen to you before I listen to the people who are actually working on the tech. I mean what the f*ck do they know about it right? You're the goddam expert apparently.

Let's mention them - by all means.

There are 30,000 plus fatalities every year in America involving human driven vehicles.

Why not start there?
