The problem with the driverless car vision

DETROIT — One auto tech company CEO explains the challenges of this future vision.

DETROIT — As stated in a press release, lack of coordination between autonomous vehicles and manned vehicles can fail the driverless car vision, according to Hagai Zyss, CEO of the Israeli company Autotalks, which specializes in accident prevention through the use of DSRC (Dedicated Short Range Communication) V2X (Vehicle-to-Everything) technology.

Zyss will give a speech at the Automobili-D show in Detroit on Jan. 17th titled, “Driving the Future of Connected Vehicles,” the release continued.

“The problem of coordinating autonomous and manned vehicles must deeply concern policymakers and the auto industry. Decision-makers must promote automotive technologies that will prevent accidents and save lives. The resolution of the coordination issue will be one of the key challenges of the industry in the next few years”, said Zyss. “Many people in the industry leap in their imagination to the point in time when all vehicles on our roads will be autonomous, but not everyone pays attention to the massive challenges in the long transition period, in which most of the vehicles will be manned and we will have to share our roads with autonomous vehicles.”

According to Zyss, “The problematic aspect of coordination has many manifestations, but two key themes can demonstrate how serious the issue is. The first theme is the fact that accidents between autonomous vehicles and manned vehicles have already happened.”

Zyss added, “Secondly, there is an inherent difficulty of human drivers to understand autonomous vehicles and vice versa. Beyond the fact that human drivers get stressed when they see an autonomous vehicle, human drivers might make sudden lane changes, presume right of way or run red lights in a way that makes it difficult for autonomous vehicles to expect and respond to.”

“In this context, it is important to understand that integrating DSRC-based V2X solutions can solve the issue of harmonizing autonomous and manned vehicles. We at Autotalks are playing a key role in tackling this challenge. In order to support this move and realize the autonomous vehicle vision, it is important to lay down an infrastructure of legislation and regulation that together with additional technologies will ensure that the integration of autonomous vehicles into our roads will prevent accidents rather than cause accidents,” Zyss said.
