There’s a video of Bill Gates taking a drive in an autonomous car around London. I’ve been to London dozens of times, ridden and cabs and Ubers, and even driven a few times. It’s a crazy environment, and I struggle to process everything as a human. This is certainly a challenge for a car.
It’s not a Tesla. In fact, I don’t see many Tesla FSD (full self driving) videos in the UK. I know they don’t have all the updates the US gets, but I struggled to find any actually in London. A few that looked like they were close to London aborted in city driving.
In any case, this is a neat video, and if you look at all the things happening, as a driver, you can see the complexity of navigating around London. Imagine programming this.
If the video doesn’t tender, the URL is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ruKJCiAOmfg&w=560&h=315
This is a car from Wayve, and it is impressive. Not the car, but the driving and control are something. It’s something I’d like to experience, since I could imagine this being a very neat thing in witness. Certainly would be better than the Uber I took in Las Vegas a few years ago.
They’re hiring. Not for me, but maybe for you.
