AgeLab Research Scientist Bryan Reimer writes in Forbes about the value of improving safety systems that augment driver capabilities as opposed to pursuing fully autonomous driving"
"Perhaps our hyper-focus on self-driving vehicles has gone far enough. Taking a page book from aviation, collaborative driving where humans play a role with automation in an engineered system is looking more and more promising. With automation assisting drivers to a greater degree, enhancing safety while reducing the day-to-day stresses of driving could more easily be the first of many stepping-stones on the long path to self-driving and driverless vehicles."
