It’s been awhile since we heard anything about Volvo’s audacious experiment to deliver 100 self-driving cars to regular people in Sweden for testing. The program, called Drive Me, was supposed to kick off in 2017, but now the company says it’s pushing the date to 2021.

    As i stated in the passed, its way to early to believe these vehicles will work without any issues. 2 teslas in automatic pilot crashed killing tech ceo and a 16 year old kid. The shuttle mini van that was to be tested in las vegas crashed the 1st day of testing within hours of operation (delivery truck involved) The computer systems and radar systems cant determine when a bad driver is going to cause an accident... this systems shuld be programed to anticipate and be prepared for emergency actions. TO DATE I HAVE NOT SEEN ACTUAL VIDEO OF AN AUTO PILOT TAKING ACTION TO AVOID AN ACCIDENT
