‘Human-like vision’ pivotal to unlocking autonomous driving

Despite what people might think, the biggest challenge to the fully-autonomous future is not technical or scientific, but in fact, societal. According to a survey from the American Automobile Association (AAA), 88% of the American adult population say that they would never trust riding in a self-driving car. It’s easy to dismiss this lack of trust as ignorance on the part of the American consumer, but it’s crucial that the automotive industry addresses consumer concerns with new developments in technology. Driving is quite safe overall—the US sees about one death per 100 million miles travelled.
