- I disagree with: ‘Alexis Madrigal:The Atlantic:The Most Important Self-Driving Car Announcement Yet–Autonomous vehicles will transform urban life by 2020, if Waymo’s time line is correct’! Especially words like:
"But the qualitative impact will be even bigger. Right now, maybe 10,000 or 20,000 people have ever ridden in a self-driving car, in any context. Far fewer have been in a vehicle that is truly absent a driver. Up to a million people could have that experience every day in 2020.
2020 is not some distant number. It’s hardly even a projection. By laying out this time line yesterday, Waymo is telling the world: Get ready, this is really happening. This is autonomous driving at scale, and not in five years or 10 years or 50 years, but in two years or less."
- Yes, it will transform dense urban core life by 2029 not 2020 but it won’t transform the suburbs and rural places!
- In other words, I stand by my previous post: ‘Probably Wrong 2029 Prediction :-) : No self-driving cars and vehicles outside city cores’
