Self-Driving Vehicle Technology Is 'Absolutely Not Ready'

I'm sure companies like Google probably didn't want to hear this, but I think this lady is right. Hell, I'll go one step further and say we won't see widespread use of self-driving cars until all cars are fully autonomous.

Then, as if to splash cold water on their ambitions, the committee called Missy Cummings, an engineering professor and human-factors expert at Duke University who argued self-driving cars are "absolutely not ready for widespread deployment." Cummings, 49, who was one of the Navy's first female fighter pilots from 1988 to 1999 and managed a $100 million Navy program to build a sensor-laden robotic helicopter, is director of Duke's Humans and Autonomy Lab.
