Automated Vehicles – Autos vs. Computers

Brad Templeton explains in this thought provoking article that there are two cultures who are thinking about automated vehicles. He sums it up as:

“The conservative view sees this technology as a set of wheels that has a computer.

The aggressive school sees this as a computer that has a set of wheels.

The conservative view sees this as an automotive technology, and most of them are very used to thinking about automotive technology. For the aggressive school, where I belong, this is a computer technology, and will be developed — and change the world — at the much faster pace that computer technologies do.”

It is going to be interesting to watch this play out. Thanks to Bill Gutelius for the tip.
