Ford, GM, Toyota Create Safety Group For Self-Driving Cars

Ford, General Motors and Toyota have teamed with SAE International to form the Automated Vehicle Safety Consortium (AVSC).

The group intends to work to safely advance the testing, development and deployment of automated or self-driving vehicles, including the setting of industry standards.

The first output of the group is expected to be a roadmap of priorities for developers, manufacturers and integrators of automated vehicle technology with a focus on data sharing, vehicle interaction with other road users and safe testing guidelines, according to the AVSC announcement,

“We understand that autonomous vehicles need to operate safely and reliably in concert with infrastructure and other road users to earn the trust of the communities in which they are deployed,” states Randy Visintainer, chief technology officer, Ford Autonomous Vehicles LLC. “Our goal with the consortium is to work with industry and government partners to expedite development of standards that can lead to rule making.”

All three automakers have ongoing research and development relating to self-driving vehicles.

    Just came up with a new name for this nonsense:  "Titanic Technology"  cause you're all going down together.  As i stated the other day, I know a Ford dealership owner and he said most Ford dealers want nothing to do with Auto-Tonomous cars.
    Billions are being wasted so someone does not have to pay attention to driving??
