We’ve got some news for you… Self-driving cars are a LIE!

Now we hear you - you’ve probably seen a couple of self-driving cars shown off by some manufacturers. And what’s more, you’ve also probably heard that new Teslas come including self-driving tech!

Well here’s the thing… Any self-driving car you’ve seen from a manufacturer is only a concept. There are currently NO self-driving cars in production! And what’s more, when it comes to Tesla, although they do apparently include self-driving tech, we can assure you that it’s temperamental at the best of times!

So the question is - will we ever see a self-driving car go into production in our lifetime?! There’s only one way to find out… Join Mat for his latest video and see for yourself!

    There is another psychological barrier to self-driving cars. A robot car will be programmed to do whatever needs to be done to avoid a crash. Many places (maybe not Canada) have drivers we might politely call "a little aggressive". Those drivers will quickly learn that self-driving cars will always let them pull onto the road, change lanes, or even stop. Self-driving cars, if they ever come to be, will be the Patseys of the highway

    Mostly agree. After working in software and tech for 40 years (call me a dinosaur, but one with experience), I see things going awry in three areas: software, hardware, environment. We've already seen autonomous driving software interpret a sunset as a yellow light, or not seeing a white truck (fatality resulted), not recognizing construction barriers or repainted lane markers, etc. Hardware sensors or cameras not doing their job right, or a little spray paint or petroleum jelly on a camera by malicious vandals would throw things off, as a mischievously placed magnet might. Environmental factors include heavy rain, freezing rain, snow, dust storm, potholes, obstacles on road, etc. Ever drive into a rising sun, as on Rte 2 East towards Boston? It's more than just a big programming problem. We should be happy with things like adaptive cruise control, auto-braking in emergencies, and inter-vehicle communication.

    @M F Except for the fact that the companies that are investing heavily in autonomous cars aren't little start ups, they're big players like GM, Google, and Tesla.These companies are in a serious race to make it work because they know that once they solve it there is a goldmine at the end. Autonomous vehicles will be pretty much the only game in town one day, and then anyone who wants to move people or goods will need to pay the top players to get it done. Yes, follow the money, but follow it to the most logical place, not the most cynical one. Microsoft made huge money off selling an OS to power the world's personal computers. The leader in autonomous driving will make huge money by selling an OS for transportation and logistics.

    While I think you are right that companies have underestimated how long it will take I think you are wrong saying it will never happen. There are already driverless robotaxi services running commercial services in several US and Chinese cities, which shows the basic problem can be solved. It just needs to be scaled up. The legal point is a good one, but again being solved, as you mention its legal now in Germany and will be in spring 2022 with ALKS in the UK, which have required changes to the law on driving and liability. Certainly ALKS is very limited, but its just the first step. Fully autonomous driving is here and scaling, but it will take longer than many companies have been predicting.

No car maker is ever going to have such confidence in thier car to say the driver is legally allowed to go to sleep. Until that happens, it's not full self driving, and manufacturers should be banned from calling it that 👍

    I don’t like the premise of driverless cars. I’m still a fan of the systems like PilotAssist and adaptive cruise control, where the car does most of the work while the driver oversees the car and jumps in when something goes wrong on the road. A system where the car works in tandem with the driver is better than a system where it works entirely on its own.

    @Ohiou_2k Bobcat To quote you "One crash and the self driving automaker is held liable for death, that will end it.". So following your own argument all it takes is ONE death and the industri is over. There has been death due to elevator failure, but that hasn't stopped elevators. The point I was trying to make was elevators are statistically safer to take than stairs, and if it turns out that autonomous vehicles are safer to use than a human driven vehicle, even though there might be deaths, then autonomous vehicles will be a thing of the future.

    @HDnatureTV: Relaxing Music & Nature Sounds Videos Such a terrible analogy. A human operates a gun. A human pulls the trigger. Does the gun fire itself? A human drives a car, is held liable for any damage or death they cause operating the vehicle, just like a gun. If guns start pulling triggers autonomously, maybe you can make that comparison. Critical thinking is in short supply on this thread. Must be public education telling people “what to think.”

Are you suggesting an elevator is just as dangerous as operating a car? Statistics do not support your argument. According to USDOT, 21,160 people died in the US in the first half of 2021 on US highways. I’m not wasting my time researching this one, recommend you prove me wrong. More injuries and deaths come from falls on stairs than elevators.

    While I agree with the fact that manufacturers overpromise a lot, I feel like this video is maybe a little bit too pessimistic. I am a freelance developer focusing mostly on the autonomous vehicles industry, and from my point of view, we have something called SAE levels of autonomy, there are 6 levels (0 to 5) describing basically how much autonomous a vehicle is. The current systems are mostly somewhere around level 2, some of them being level 3 (Honda Sensing Elite). Level 3 basically means, that you do not need to have your hands on the steering wheel or supervise the vehicle, but you must take over when the vehicle asks you to - essentially if it gets into a situation that it can not navigate safely. Full autonomy would be level 5, and I feel like a lot of the researches agree that this might be possible in the future. Will this happen in one or two years? Definitely not. Will it happen at some point? Well, it might. The technology moves forwards quite quickly, both on the software and on the hardware side. The sensors are improving (cameras, lidars, radars...), the algorithms and models are improving, maybe it will reach a point where it is good enough at some point in the future. I agree with your point that the legal stuff is maybe even more complicated than the actual technological stuff. Resolving all those legal issues might take a ton of time. But as you mention in the video, in Germany, it will be legal already to take your hands off the steering wheel under some circumstances (current speed and so on). Something similar is probably done in Japan for the Honda Legend Hybrid EX. So that is a good sign that even those things can be resolved when people want to. Yes, it will be much more difficult in case of full autonomy, but not impossible in my opinion. The safety is a very interesting aspect, for human driven cars, there is something like 7 deaths by car accidents per billion miles, so in theory, once the autonomous cars become more reliable than that, they would be safer than the average human driver. But I agree with the point that "forgiving machines for mistakes" tends to be pretty complicated. For people that would be interested in the safety aspect, I would recommend a talk called "Can We Really Use Machine Learning in Safety Critical Systems?" by Richard Murray, a scientist from Caltech, that talks about some of those things (although the talk is kinda pessimistic as a whole as well).

    I agree with every aspect that Matt said in this video. Technology has come a long way in advancement and it will continue to do so. Technically we had the technology to do this way back in the 00's but the law didn't allow it, still doesn't and I believe it never will. Technology makes our lives easier and though I will admit it would be cool to see this one day, I wouldn't trust it unless I still had some control of the vehicle and that I was supervising the whole thing. Why? Because Technology isn't always consistent, it breaks down, slows down, has slower response times and it can give at any moment. Technology relies on very specific instructions so you would have to program all possibilities it can encounter on the road which are endless. My car can detect if something is about to happen and steer to avoid a collision. It has sensors all over the car which makes this happen but there are times when my car beeped alerting me of a possible collision and there was nothing there to collide with. When I inspected the car there was dirt covering the sensors which led it to believe that the dirt was something on the road that I was "about to hit". Personally I think people who trust their "auto pilot" feature to the point where they can fall asleep are insane. This has killed people in the past, it would work for so long and if something does go wrong the people wouldn't be awake to take control. I never would trust a car to drive itself without me supervising because there are too many possibilities of something going wrong.

    As a retired lawyer I was asked about this ten years ago. In my opinion the legal side is relatively simple. A piece of legislation can be introduced to cover driverless vehicles and state that responsibility in lieu of an actual driver rests with the insured party for any driverless vehicle. In the absence of an insured party (illegal but sometimes inevitable with all of the renegade drivers on the road already) then responsibility rests with the Motor Insurer's Bureau and the force of the law with regard to the uninsured user. A stolen vehicle will be covered by the MIB. The issues are primarily the tech which will be just about competent in 20 years BUT as we all know tech fails from time to time so in reality there will always be a human driver.

    Generally love the videos, keep up the good work. That being said this video will *not* age well. I've been lucky enough to have Tesla's FSD for the past 2 or so months. At first I had some doubts as to if/when they can fix some major issues, but just from v10.4 to v10.8 the changes are spectacular. Right now I can drive about 95% without having to take over autopilot. The other 5% are beginning and ending locations, as well as tons of corner cases that will take some time to work out. But, the progress I'm seeing is astounding, I really mean that objectively, shocked at every drive.

    Thanks for the video, Mat. Definitely, the legal framework is one of the key points determining the implementation of the self-driving technology. That is clearly overlooked when making promises: may technology allow the implementation of a self-driving car by next year? Maybe. Will the legal framework be ready? Certainly not. And that is for objects moving on the surface. Now, have a look at flying cars, self-driving flying taxis - with no pilot on board BTW - and the like lot, with a 100 times more complex laws and regulations. If what has been done with self-driving cars could be called “overpromising”, I am out of adjectives to qualify what has been stated regarding flying cars and self-driving flying taxis. Cheers.

    Elon clearly underscores that the technical aspect is one thing and the legal is another one, so Tesla is in the clear here. It's entirely possible that there will be some serious legal battles over this but it's also possible it will be accepted quite easy. The history is full of changes that people deemed impossible before. California already allows for autonomous driving (to a degree) and this is because they want to allow for the truly self driving cars to arrive.

    Matt you are correct now, however I beg to differ about the future. There are few levels of "Autonomy" in the automotive industry as you may know, L1-L5 with 5 being fully autonomous, Tesla is currently at what is considered a L2+ or L2.5. Yes, Technology has a long way to go to reach Level 5, yes, legislation will most likely take a lot of time and for car manufacturers to start taking responsibility might take ages, but, as in other technologies, things that may have been considered impossible in the past are now a just part of our daily lives and are developing fast. I do believe that no technology would ever be more powerful than the human brain, but I also think full Autonomous driving will be available not so far into the future, maybe 10-20 years from now who knows, but it will get there.

    Matt, while I agree that the technology is not ready yet, once you start to see autonomous cars on the road and accident rates decrease driverless will start to become common. There are too many bad drivers out there and autonomy is the path to making driving safer and more accessible to a wide range of people with disabilities. Airplanes generally are self flying now, which is one of the reasons that you see less crashes. Same thing will happen on the roads eventually. Tesla got too far out over their skis, but there are companies taking the time to do it properly and will succeed.

    Living on the countryside, even a simple lane assist system is interesting. If I have it on, sometimes my car tries to steer into oncoming traffic. That is because the road is so narrow there is only one marked lane for both directions and when you meet another car you have to drive at the edge of the paved surface or even slightly outside it. Meeting bigger vehicles, you must find a side road or similar. But the lane assist simply looks at the painted line, which obviously must be driven on or outside when meeting other cars, so it tries to correct you back into the middle of the road.

Your standard Honda Accord has the same set of safety tech in it for no cost now. Are there differences? Some. But in real-world driving, the Honda system does virtually all of the same things and is based on hardware. Tesla doing the "pay GM and Mercedes levels of option packages to get all the safety tech" game - at the tune of $7000 is just greed.

    Another dimension of self-driving cars comes into play once the algorithm behind the safety system determines that an accident is unavoidable. You are alone in your car, or with just another person - maybe your infant child - and you are about to hit a group of people, say five or seven. The only way to avoid crashing into the group is to steer right into a wall with a high probability that you and your child won´t survive. How will the AI decide? What are the psychological and legal implications? That was roughly the scenario I presented to my students in a sociology class a few years ago, when the hype about "fully autonomous" cars started.

    for tesla the logic dictates it will choose to crash in a way that limits injury. so no you wont crash into a wall, you will crash into the vehicle ( since both have crash worthyness) it will try to slow down as much as possible etc. the vehicles are also designed to be highlty survivable in a crash, will probably be more so when no stearing wheel can slam into your chest. also "hit a group of people" they will magically fall from the sky and end in your path? really? what if suddenly ET lands his flying sorcer 1 inch from you car while you're going 100km/h how will you decide what to do? cmon with these rediculous situations. if the AI has no time to react.. a human NEVER will react better.

    One piece I really need to pick on here. "Computers aren't good at dealing with unknown." This is incorrect now, AI is at a level on self learning where you can feed in rules and let the computer get on with it. In fact this is so good people are actually learning game techniques from AI experiments in games like GO. I do think given time this sort of AI will surpass humans on simple driving. They are already well past us on ability to monitor all around and can have multiple processors dealing with all of the different things. The law side really annoys me. Self driving AI should come under the same legal stance as ABS or any other computerised aids in a car. If it goes wrong on your car and you have an accident as a result it comes out of your insurance. If this is found to be an underlying issue with the vehicle there may be a recall but in truth there is rarely compensation for the owner. In a day and age where so much on cars is computerised, this shouldn't need much amendment, but you can bet your life the legal industry will do what they can to make it so in order to line their pockets. In truth the number of accidents would reduce so much they are scared they might have to find honest jobs. I like driving so welcome the self driving technology days. It can do the boring stuff or let me enjoy beautiful scenery, then I take over for the fun bits.

    I studied electrical engineering in college and I'm an experienced software developer. This video makes valid points about current difficulties and marketing nonsense. At the moment, they should be labelled driver assist rather than self-driving. However, I have to disagree with it's over arching thesis that they aren't coming. I think the author of this video misunderstands a bit the problem of why we don't have self-driving vehicles... yet. First a clarification on what I mean by "self-driving" because there is a lot of confusion and disagreement over still evolving definitions. For the purpose of this post, I'm talking about .general purpose self-driving.. i.e. the sort of vehicles that can drive themselves fully autonomously on any city or highway road (as opposed to controlled environment self-driving which already exists). At the heart of any self-driving system is the software. The algorithms and approach developers use today is radically different than ones we used in the past (that were typically used by aircraft and trains which fall into controlled environment category). Twenty years ago you essentially had to explicitly write code for every possible permutation of events. This was extremely tedious and thus on practical level made it impossible to achieve general purpose self-driving. Today we use AI algorithms. There is some confusion and disagreement over definitions there too but for this post let me define a subset of AI as "machine learning" (rather than AI in the sense of general purpose AI like you see in human-like androids in sci-fi movies which is still a ways off) There are many mathematical approaches to machine learning but at that heart of it's definition is rather than programmers having to explicitly code how the software should react under every situation, we instead write special algorithms that can use training data. The software then compares the training data against related data of desired results. This removes the need for programmers to tediously code every situation. It also means, the bigger the training data set, the better results you end up with. The machine learning software itself is figuring out new algorithms to get to the desired results rather than the programmer. Those AI generated algos are then used to create other software on the self-driving car. The requirements for training data for self-driving is much larger than say basic image recognition. At the moment, the general purpose self-driving training data sets while huge still aren't large enough to support safe full autonomous. There is also an issue it takes immense processing power, storage and time to go through the training data.. . A third major issue is the types of data being used evolves which adds further complexity (e.g. data collected from sensors like cameras, LIDAR, GPS, IMU, etc ) However much like you see the dramatic improvements in voice and still image recognition in the last 10 years, the same has happened with self-driving. This is because the training data has expanded and more importantly continues to do so. For instance Tesla collects data from its fleet of cars to continuously increase the size of its training data. The timelines of success are difficult to predict though since the software is what is making decisions. it's a mystery even to the software developer what the software is doing (hidden by complexity). As humans we approach problems with a human rationale. Machine learning software on the other hand can take non-intuitive and convoluted approaches to solve the same problem. At some undetermined point in the future though training data sets will be large enough and processing power fast enough that the AI will create algos that equal human performance at a given task... eventually surpass human performance at that task... and then eventually dwarf human performance at that task. This is why billions of dollars are being pumped into Ai software annually. Not only will it lead to self-driving cars but nearly every industry will be affected. The future is not coming its already here. We are just at the beginning of something as important, if not more important, than the industrial revolution. AI is not only about technology change but eventually also social and political change. The steam engine might not have seemed like such a big deal at the time but few back then could predict how the world would look today. AI is going to accelerate the change humans have experienced since the industrial revolution..

The one thing that is happening in these cars that removes the driver is a remote driver monitoring the cars from a separate location. They get notifications from the car if it does not know what to do and then the person steps in and takes control of the commands the car receives. This has been successfully implemented and tested by 3 companies. However, the car still technically has a driver.

    The thing is that the public has to be convinced self driving cars are a good thing because laws are made by politicians and politicians are voted for by the public. If the public does not trust self driving cars then they will not be allowed. It will not be enough if self driving cars will be a bit safer on average in some grand statistics. All it takes is some very bad event for people to push back on the tech. All it takes is one self driving car to mow through a crowd of people. And once the amount of self driving capable cars increases (there are almost none on the road today) it is not a question of if this will happen but when this will happen. Could the same happen when a human is driving? Of course but then the human is blamed. If self driving cars cause a major accident then the technology will be blamed. Just look at what 9/11 did to the airline industry. Many people didn't want to fly anymore even though the event had nothing to do with the safety of planes themself. It took a long time and very good safety records for the airline industry to recover. There are plenty of videos on youtube of Teslas on autopilot being involved in accidents that some half decent driver would have prevented or would have never occurred if the drivers would be aware of their surroundings. But because their car is on autopilot they pay no attention to what is happening. Which is actually a major problem because the human mind is very bad at monitoring something for a long time when doing nothing itself.

    I don't really have much tech knowledge, but i can say that for self driving we need global or erea radar connection, that cars realize that there's something coming from aside or Infront of it. This is not about camera, this should be about signals and sensors and should be very sharp and effective. maybe we need next generation of Net like 6G or 7G and global nets like what Elon Musk doing like Starling. It will take 10 till 20 years for sure. Don't forget an AI 🚦 traffic system to control every movement ofthe cars.

    Sure, Tesla have been promising full self-driving for a long time and it's still not delivering it. Also the name they use is misleading. However just look at FSD Beta that's only available in US right now. It's definitely capable of driving through town without intervention. Of course it fails sometimes, but another times it works perfectly, stopping on stop signs, red lights, crossing intersections, etc...

    Good points! Additionally, imo one of the stepstones for realization of autonomous driving is the V2X (Vehicle to everything) communication infrastructure which is neglected in the first place! Maybe that does not sound so charming to their marketing departments, therefore, they prefer promoting a WOW idea out of the box!, without concereting the foundation!

    Hi Matt. Yes, at the moment they do silly things and they aren't capable of dealing with the unpredictable as you said. But, when all cars are self driving which they pretty much will be in 30 years, then they will not only be predicable but constantly telling each other what they are doing so it won't be a problem.

    If your hands have to hover over the steering wheel and have to be ready at any moment to take control incase the autopilot cuts out, you probably are more anxious and concentrating harder than just driving normally. Therefore defeating the point of driverless cars. Remember, 99% of driving is actually pretty easy and not stressful. And the 1% when it is difficult, a human is much better equipped to deal with the scenario than a computer having to process information outside it's normal parameters.

    At least Tesla's systems are pretty good handling missing road markings.

But in general I am not going to be surprised if we are still driving by ourselves 2025 but I think it's matter of time with all of this money and brain power thrown at the problem. If you are really interested about solving the weird cases Tesla's latest ai day has pretty good ideas how to solve that. Might be bit too much for average person to take in with in one watch but still good stuff.

    @carwow Hi Mat, Best way forward (probably the only way) I think is to upgrade to the roads themselves.. (infrastructure) There needs to be technology built into the roads, such as when they replace damaged 'Cats Eyes', they are replaced with newer ones that have transmitters built in them. Obviously this needs to work in tandem with the car technology, satellites etc, etc. It's an expensive game, and I think you're right! It's never going happen, certainly not at the level most of us would expect... I mean who's going to foot the bill for this new infrastructure... the government? No... the tax payer? No. The roads themselves are the key to proper autonomous driving and would cost billions! Well, that my view on it.

    Actually I see a bit different this matter beside the ethical reasoning. First, some roads are non standard: some lanes lines are not visible enough, some have 1,5 lanes instead of 2 full lanes and you have to squeeze, some intersections have totally awful shapes, some circulation signs are not visible enough, etc. Secondly, the sensors: on night/ rain/ snow/ fog they cant analyze the image property, they cant react fast enough on tight situations because of motion blur or just very low reaction time. Thirdly, because of how AI works: it trains on a lot of models so it can know what to do on future situations related somehow to the training models but are unable to react on totally new situations. Although we humans have never fall into a canal, we know it’s bad . The only solution I would see viable is to keep only the autonomous car, communicating each other in almost real time in a huge grid. But mixing them with human cars and in night/ bad weather/ strange roads seems a dream for me

    Another factor which I have frequently remarked on, and is related to your mention of responsibility in an accident, is that of insurance. If the car is 'self-driving', then who should have provided insurance cover? Is it the manufacturer of the vehicle? The manufacturer of the AI/guidance system? The software writers? And if the car is stolen, shouldn't the AI system have recognised a non-authourised "driver"? Perhaps one of the main reasons we won't see such vehicles for a very long time is the potential liability.

  208. NO3V

    Who cares? The person being driven will pay for the risk. Either included in the car purchase (what you call liability on the manufacturer/developer side) or in a monthly package or just in a normal insurance quote or within a per-ride fare. How is that at all difficult?

    To this day I've never believed in autonomous cars being a real thing soon. First because I'd hate a world in which you can't drive, plus imagine being the only one driving in the traffic : would you be responsible more than the others in case of an accident ? Second, dealing with laws : as you said it's gonna be a nightmare to determine responsabilities, and manufacturers won't be willing to be held for responsible for accidents ; or they will but it's gonna cost a big amount of money to the consumer to be allowed to "drive" autonomous vehicles. Third, I don't trust machines that much. I work with I.A. (in remote sensing, environmental studies etc.) and they still have issues recognizing objects.

    So well said. "The Tesla adaptive cruise works very well... most of the time" It only takes one error to cause a fatal accident. We took delivery of a 2021 £115k BMW X7 this year. All the bells and whistles. Drove it twice over long distance, the auto cruise worked okay. Laggy but acceptable. Then... on two occasions the motorway traffic comes to a near stop in the distance. Hazards flashing. Car should be decelerating... no... no... nothing... Dashboard starts flashing that a crash is imminent and I the driver step in before I 'assume' it would emergency stop from 95mph on the autobahn. Or possibly not... Not f**king good enough BMW. Sold the car to WBAC and broke even and now have a Mercedes GLS. Hopefully this one is a little less s**t. And yes I am the type that throws my phone out of the window when it doesn't work properly. 🤣

    As someone working in the field, I agree full autonomy is still a long shot. Nevertheless what most of the mentioned programs promised was level 3 (autonomous in a specific domain with driver intervention within 10s). Mercedes brought that to market (albeit in the most minimalist domain possible). But others will follow soon and extend the domain. It's called the mars mission of the automotive industry for a reason. L5 is not going to happen any time soon, but I am confident we will get there eventually. Legislation is not going to be the issue once the technology is ready. I worry more about motion sickness and public acceptance once those cars will drive around in a very safety-centric way religiously obeying speed limits. By the way, Tesla's marketing is deceiving and illegal in the EU. I regard it as near to impossible to achieve an ASIL-D functional safety rating required for level 3 with the sensor set provided for the simple fact that it does not offer redundancy. It's probably never gonna be more than an admittedly very good level 2 system.

They're well over 3 billion today since that was 14 months ago. So yeah, your little fake number doesn't work with people who know.

Tesla claims (they give no concrete evidence) that they have about 2 million miles of observed driving from FSD Beta (what’s being used to build out full FSD) Waymo in 2016 had 2.3 million miles driven so once again you’re wrong, Waymo has more usable miles ( according to Teslas own data). As for your second claim of Tesla being way ahead and number one, Teslas own data and employees contradicts that statement. So either Tesla is lying or you are.

    @Day Dreamer Computers beat humans long long before the advent of AI, although it might have taken AI to beat Go. I think the subtext here is not that difficult problems can never be solved, it's that sometimes we underestimate the difficulties of certain problems. I mean, think about how extremely difficult this problem is:. It will be considered a failed technology if it only gets it right 99.9999999% of the time. That is a very high bar for a problem with countless dynamic variables. The other point is that marketing gets mixed up with both competitive pressure and wishful thinking. If one car company boasts that it will have self driving in 3 years or whatever the timeline is, markets will soon demand some kind of statement from other car makers. Before the anticipated date arrives when the cars are supposed to be autonomous, they get lots of positive press plus they calm the nerves of their shareholders who need to know the given company can remain competitive.
