The Real Moral Dilemma of Self-Driving Cars

  • Опубликовано:  7 месяцев назад
  • We talk about all the potentially challenging situations autonomous cars could get into but not about how human drivers are not very good. Tens of thousands die on the roads every year in collisions, most of which could be prevented by autonomous vehicles.

    I wanted to make a video about autonomous cars for some time but I hadn't had the opportunity. The self-driving technology is already at a state where it can save lives if only it were more widely implemented.

    People don't care about being safe, people care about feeling safe.

      people care about feeling safe. but feeling safe is our brain's reward for perceived safeness. so people care about being safe. it's just that they feel safer with the tried and true method rather than the tried and true, by somebody else, method.

    While I generally agree with this video's message, making a comparison to aircraft isn't really fair. the very fact that an aircraft can move in 3 dimensions already removes the vast majority of the potential for failure, and the kind of automation on aircraft isn't as complete as it'd have to be in a car.

      That was my reaction to that video. No computer software would put the car so close to the vehicle in front of it. It could be constantly planning safe escape routes, so that it makes sure that it always has one.

    i find that driving a car is fun ... or at least better than being a passenger im not afraid of the dangers of driving i know theyre there but theres always a danger we need to accept that. soon enough everything will be autonomous and maybe we can live free with all hard work being done autonomously until than i want to get in my manual car and drive dangerously sometimes just for a thrill and having that power of holding my own life on a steering wheel i dont want autonomous work to take the fun away from my life for now the fear of death keeps my life interesting

    nope nope and nope i will never drive a autonomous car its a stupid idea and heres why

    the cars going to be piloted by a computer
    computers are dumb really dumb
    computers are smart when smart people write software for them
    smart people arnt always the ones writing that code
    even smart people do dumb things
    computers are good except for when there messed with by bad people

    your computer is fine and great untill you get a virus and then it starts emailing people like nuts sending off your banking information to the internet and all manner of bad things
    how am i supposed to feel safe in my car knowing that at any time my car can either a have a glitch caused by its programming that makes it do something dangerous (has already happened look up tesla autopilot accidents) or is interfered with by someone malicious

    now i dont think im special so i dont think that some hacker come hitman wants me dead but our wars are leaving the battlefields and begining to take place in the cyber space (i hate that term btw)
    soon terrorism wont be flying a plane into a building it will be breaking into tesla ford bmw audi update servers and sending out malicious updates that at the push of a butten suddenly cause massive car pile ups across the country at the stroke of a key

    sure we can put security measures into place to prevent this but smart people arnt always smart

    your router your using right now has security measures on it they have a ultra secure username (admin) secured with a ultra secure password (password, admin,changeme,leave blank) a security flaw in your router aint a big deal but a security flaw in software controlling a few tons of metal moving at highweigh speeds with 5 people inside on a road filled with other road users? catastrophic if you want to drive a car drive a car if you want to sit back and relax as your whiscked to your destination get on the subway or a bus

    Sure we have human error now, but we also have a-holes that just want to watch the world burn.
    Imagine a highway, filled with self driving cars traveling at higher speeds than we do now. Then someone walks into the road. Every car swerves to avoid the pedestrian but now theres a chain reaction of crashes as cars swerve to avoid eachother.

      I'm with ya - I once hit a deer when it practically jumped onto my car from an embankment. Fortunately, I saw a different deer run across the road in front of it, and I knew deer often come in groups, so I was able to slow from 55 to 30 just in case - I never even really saw the deer that I hit, but I may have saved my life by guessing it was there.

      That's the advanced processing of our brains. But there are some major software bugs in there, too :)

      I wish we could see the cars 50 years from now. My guess is that they'll do exactly what you just described, and even cars today may have noticed the deer before I did. I'm really with Derek on this one, though. I just can't get past the fact that over a million fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, and best friends are killed because of human driver error every year.

      I just know I take extra caution if I see children playing in there drive way down the road I slow down as I approach, same with some cross walks if I think someone has the potential to cross even if traffic has the right a way.
      I know what you mean though, not everyone is a safe driver, not everyone is constantly aware how deadly a vehicle can be people also can get tired, and I believe we should have stricter driving tests to get our lisences.
      But as with all new technology I feel when it is first released things get over looked and with something that has the potential to kill I feel a lot of thought needs to go into how to incorporate it safely into society.

      Why would a human driver be better able to anticipate that than a car that can simultaneously see and process a 360-degree view, AND "see" things with ultrasonics and radar that a human simply can't? I think I understand what you're saying now (you're right, that's a better example), but I don't see how that scenario is any worse than having cars piloted by biological computers with significant limitations.

      It's a bit like being in a two-story building that is burning to the ground. Jumping out of the window may hurt (or you may be completely uninjured), but it can't compare with the certain death behind you.

    • MysteriousSmoke

      iamihop My point is people can take advantage of it, a human driver can potentially anticipate a child chasing a ball, or someone jumping in front of their vehicle.
      Maybe I didnt use the best scenario.
      All I meant was we should really evaluate the potential new hazards self driving vehicles would bring and not rush into it so quickly.

    I have had ZERO accidents in my 44 years of driving. Therefore it is completely false to say that autonomous cars are safer than me.

    • iamihop
      iamihop 6 часов назад

      You're certainly displaying quite a lot of arrogance, "PAL," by pretending that a truck driver couldn't have fallen asleep and hit you head-on, or that a distracted driver couldn't have run into you from behind, or that a drunk driver couldn't have blown a red light and T-boned you. You may like to pretend to be a god, but you can't control things like that.

      Unless, of course, the reason you haven't had accidents is that you never drive. If that's the case, then I take it all back: you actually are safer than autonomous vehicles.

    Hmm... I think the only real "problem" with self-driving cars is that they are hackable. When every car is a computer, and every car communicates with each other, then unscrupulous people are going to find ways to get into them.

    Of course, if they use Linux-based systems, it will be a bit safer, but people are going to try, and they will succeed. There is no such thing as an un-hackable device.

    Self-driving cars should be put out there as fast as possible, sure, but only as fast as is wise. Rushing the programming or security would be a disaster. (In fact, many cars that are heavily based on electronics, and connected to the Internet have been hacked. Everything from brakes, locks, windows, and I believe even acceleration could be controlled remotely, with no control from the actual driver.)

    Still, I am a big supporter of self-driving cars. But these problems need to be solved proactively, not after it happens and people panic about it. That would be the death of self-drivinng cars. (More people die now to accidents. But you know the media will eat up those stories.)

    I live in an area, where winter blizzards are normal. When snow accumulates on a self-serving car's cameras, it doesn't drive properly. ...If a self-serving car won't keep me or others safe, during the worst road conditions, what's the point for me? These things will only be popular in areas that never have snow, hail, or freezing rain...

    • iamihop
      iamihop 7 часов назад

      Most self-driving car tech includes non-optical sensors, like radar and ultrasonics. These are even better than your eyes for driving in difficult conditions (you, after all, rely on optical sensors, too). But, more to the point, if conditions are bad enough that the cameras get covered, it's not safe for _anything_ to be driving, anyway. Most of the cameras are located inside the car, so if the windshield/windows are clear, so are they. If they can't see well enough, then neither can you.

      And you can take over control of the vehicle until you get to a safe place to wait out the blizzard.

    it's a whole lot more than just the "small percentage" of cases you proclaim to be an issue. There's also issues of malfunction, viruses, mal-intentioned hacking. Giving way to autonomous cars is just opening the doors for people to cause mass chaos and destruction. When will people learn technology doesn't make things safer, it makes things a lot more dangerous. A note written down in my pocket is a lot safer than an email stored on a computer. Cash that i can hold on to and have on my person is a lot safer thank a bank. A person in physical control of a car will always be safer than an autonomous one.

    Safety is nowhere near the biggest moral issue of self driving cars. The real issue that no one seems to think about is how much freedom they're giving away. What's going to stop the government from mandating that they be able to take over anyone's car? What's going to stop hackers and criminals from using that technology as well? American intelligence agencies have been known to horde software vulnerabilities, and those vulnerabilities have been known to leak. As great as technology is, we shouldn't be giving it this much power over our lives

    I could imagine that if there were a more readily available option to go racing on legal tracks then taking a gradual step towards autonomous highway/city roads would be more feasible.

    I love to race and ride the bends, and it is obviously very dangerous to do so in the city so I like to drive in the hills, way less traffic but way too out of the way. If more tracks opened up, like on the outskirts of cities, I would be much more towards autonomous roads.

    This along with being more abundant and affordable.

    So you get a call on your cell phone while driving, you press a button on your steering wheel, the car drives autonomously following the road that you were already on, maybe following a preset path (like to home or work or whatever) and then you accept the call, then when you finish you press the same button and turn it off. That is what it should be used for. Not for you to sleep or anything like that.

    I remember way back in the early 90s reading what was then an already old sci-fi book dealing with exactly the same dilemma of self-driving smart cars. IIRC it was set in a smart-car retirement village. Mind you, those cars had achieved self-awareness so somewhat alters the outcome.

    Because believe or not, some people actually like to drive themselves. Driving can be relaxing, and yes stupid drivers exists, but how about instead of banning normal cars we ban stupid drivers? Do what Germany does, if you drive like a grandma in the left lane, no more car for you. Half of the problem is idiot drivers. Traffic can be made just by somebody driving slow in the left lane. Fatalities happen when people drive drunk or text and drive. Just ban stupid drivers.

    What should have started happening a long time ago is stricter driving tests. The roads in California seem flooded with people who got a driver's license because someone else from their ethnic group got a job as a DMV field examiner. Seriously, some days it's like driving around behind Mr. Magoo the whole time. The driving test should be in the field and also include a reaction test on a simulator. If you don't pass then you have to have a self-driving car. If you pass you have the option of driving your own car. At least I may be able to wend my way through the smart grid when it all goes down at once. Happy motoring to the rest of you....

    I'd rather have a higher margin of error than have a car that someone who doesn't really like you can easily access and kill you..

    Driverless cars will take your freedom to go anywhere away. You'll only be allowed to drive to destination that Big Brother allows you to go. Already computerized cars can be taken over by someone else and driven where they want you to go, not where you want to go.
    That's the freedom we should be worried about. Not the b/s about less people getting hurt or died because they couldn't be bothered to pay attention while driving.
    "Give us your submission they say and we'll give you the comfort you seek.
    That is their trap.
    What level of comfort do you require to become a slave?"

    public shared transportation is the only possible sustainable cenario for the future but we insist on being lazy selfish people. I think if we dont plan our cities better and make this shift voluntarily, sometime in the not so far future, unfortunately, need will.
    Individual transportation based on oil was fancy, expensive, a luxurious item when first created. and then with time more and more people got access to it. and now we understand that the world simply cant support its 7bi inhabitants driving . air pollution, congested traffic, inefficiencies everywhere you look.
    I saw a rise of a somewhat middle class in the last 15 years in my country (br) and transportation in our middle sized and major cities basically collapsed. During an internship in India I was amazed by what traffic congestion really is and how good managed public transportation can be in europe. Ive heard US cities are made for cars, with comerce zones far apart while in europe I felt like the inner core of the cities tend to be easily reached with metro/tram/bus and from there things are walking distance.
    I see all this technological efford towards self driving cars along with electrical cars and it all makes me think: shouldnt we be putting similar energy into building cities that are more public transportation and walking friendly?
    I mean, i can envision a whole fleet of self driving cars on a highway, with people resting inside, and all the complexities of the systems needed in each car for it to move and to move safely (im a computer engineer).... isnt a good train a much simpler solution? I know one still has to move from his house to the station and that can be a nuisance. but if you have good metro/tram/buses that could work. even taxis are better than private cars! anyway, just my 5 cent. (sry bad engrish)

    I don't care I'll never drive a self driving car even if driving a car becomes illegal then it's just time to street race.

    The ethical solution is simple. The self driving car protects it's passengers. Everyone else needs to protect themselves. They are outside of the self driving car's responsibility.

    Will there ever reach a point that drivers of autonomous cars are no longer legally responsible for accidents? The more autonomous you make a vehicle, the more the driver will tune out.

    So I gather that teaching people to drive is not an option? It's fine to make cars safer, but that's no excuse not to teach drivers how to learn what their limits are. The fact is simply that people don't know how to drive, they aren't taught how to learn to drive.

    I think the premise that automation is one of the best ways to make the roads safer ignores the obvious solution (one car companies hate)... and that is LESS CARS! I'm pretty sure every form of public transit has a safety track record that is far better than driving (perhaps even if driverless). Sure it's not applicable in every situation, but it could be utilized/leveraged more.

    So your just saying, ignore all the potential ethical dilemmas because this will SUPPOSEDLY revolutionize driving.

    Your fallacious statement that the "small percentage" somehow is less significant than the bigger one is predatory at best and malicious at worst

    This is unproven technologies just a baker's dozen of best-case scenarios will not bring about change
