    have seen some on street test (the 1st version), very impresive... only law and insurance issue make it hard to dev.

    but one day...

    Impressive that a 10W chip can handle such a complex system. Though I'm guessing this is just an ASIC (not that that's a problem).

    Guessing this will end up in an Audi. Their nvidia powered virtual cockpit in their newer designed models is extremely impressive.

    Any self driving technology should have a required redundant system just in case one fails it goes to the backup system.

    I don't see why car manufacturers couldn't include two of these systems. Worst case scenario, if both were to fail, the car could just automatically put hazards on, alert the driver of the failure, and attempt to stop the car.

    But on the note of redundancy and failsafes, I do fear for the future of some cars. For many, the steering will be 100% electric. Meaning, if/when the steering motors fail, you will have no control over steering whatsoever. That just sounds purely idiotic to me. Even with electrically assisted steering, you can tell when something is about to fail because it doesn't feel right, but in a fully electric system there is no real force feedback at all.

    It's going to be a real long time before we have fully automated cars despite what the media will have the peasants believe. Fully automated self driving cars are at least another 15 years away and that's without considering legal hindrance.

    Even the famous google self driving car is incredibly limited as of yet, most people don't know that it can only drive within 1% of roads that's fully mapped out and even then it can only drive in perfect conditions with street painted lanes fully visible. If there is a construction zone with unexpected things like added stop signs, the google car will drive right by it but on the other hand if you put a human cut out board on a street corner at a stop sign, the google car will stay there until a human takes over.
