The arrival of autonomous car Uber, always according to the u.s. firm, it will occur before 2020. Time-consuming testing necessary to implement the technology which will include their cars and looked like they had everything under control. Obviously we should not ignore the problems that you have had with the authorities of California and the complaint that has been lodged by Google for having appropriated part of its technology by the fault of a former worker.
however, it seems that Uber is complicating things as it turns out that its autonomous cars are not as autonomous as they believed. According to Recode, the fleet of autonomous cars of the u.s. firm is having trouble performing the validation tests that allow them to put on the market your service of autonomous cars. In addition, this problem would be giving in Pennsylvania, Arizona and California by being both a endemic problem of the technology that is mounted the vehicles and not of the engineers that go with them.
apparently during the week is carried out more than 20 thousand miles of driving. The problem comes in that over this distance the cars need development engineers to intervene more often than is desirable to correct his driving. As reveals Recode, the riders may not move more than a mile without the cars need your help not to abandon the road, correct the path or even avoid an accident.
Uber has been reported that this intervention does not imply that their cars are unsafe or not to be able to circulate independently on the roads. Blame this need for intervention to the pathway may have the dividing lines badly painted or that the navigation systems can be wrong. However, do not deny that they are working against the clock so that these problems do not complicate the existence in regards to launch before anyone else to market your autonomous car.
remains to Be seen if Uber is able to solve these problems and if the time and their accounts do not end up with their ambitions. For now, everything is in the hand of their engineers and product developers. There will be more news in a little time, that we are safe.
