An Autonomous Car Blocked a Fire Truck Responding to an Emergency

We all know what it will take (uniform and agreed standards across the entire motor industry so that all vehicles interoperate with each other) but it will take years if not decades to get there whilst everyone comes in with their own system until a series of incidents leads us to that inevitable/predictable conclusion.

Then will come the interchangeable parts (eg sensors), common safety standards and agreed minimum level of maintenance required to maintain such systems safely.

To anyone who thinks autonomous driving is less than 10 years away en masse for all roads eg across all states or all of Europe – I’ll take a bet and say at least 20 before it’s seemed safe enough to not have a driver always available to take over.
