We've been looking at articles on Tesla Self Driving 'autopilot' mode and we came across the following on Self-driving cars:
  • From MIT Technology A Simple Way to Hasten the Arrival of Self-Driving Cars
    • Data from an Oxford University study shows that even a short commute can change dramatically over a year. Sharing such information could help self-driving cars hit the roads sooner.
      Other items of interest:
      • Weather, lighting, and even the features of roads themselves can vary wildly in a relatively short period of time.
      • Systems that rely on precise mapping, which includes Google’s vehicles, will struggle with such changes.
      • Some companies, such as Tesla, aren’t using detailed maps—instead they’re relying on advances in image and sensor processing to detect and avoid obstacles. But these systems would also be confused by the sorts of features identified by the Oxford team
