Federal regulators says car makers “cannot wait for perfect” on automation

“Pre-market approval steps” could clarify responsibility in the future.
Megan Geuss - 7/23/2016,


On Friday, head of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration
(NHTSA) Mark Rosekind told an audience in Detroit, Michigan that car
makers “cannot wait for perfect” when it comes to developing and
deploying self-driving car technology. The Wall Street Journal
reported that Rosekind said automation would “save people’s lives” in
a time when auto fatalities have been up 8 percent since 2014.

Even if self-driving cars kill people while improving their programs,
they will still kill a lot less than human drivers.
