Autonomous vehicle testing—should perfect get in the way of good?

This Automotive World report considers whether prefect should get in the way of good when it comes evaluating AV competency

Special Reports: Autonomous vehicle testing—should perfect get in the way of good?

The European Commission figures claim that 90% of all crashes are caused by human error. On paper, therefore, a switch to autonomous vehicles should drastically reduce on-road injuries and fatalities. But is it that simple?

With initial self-imposed deadlines missed, developers are under pressure to make their AVs profitable, but they cannot afford to put humans at risk by fast tracking development. At the same time, with thousands of lives being lost on roads every year, it is critical that automated and ADAS-enabled vehicles make it to the general market as soon as possible. Developers have a fine line to tread when it comes to evaluating how safe is safe enough.
