It is both cheaper and easier to wall off responsibility behind warning systems and legalese, but these are passive defenses rather than active solutions.

And it seems to me the demands of efficiency at the cost of individual's health and wellbeing - it's got to be balanced. But the goal of the Miss America pageant is to promote women and give them opportunities and scholarships that they might not get otherwise. 

Take too long and SuperCruise will shut off. It could be driver training via gamification of Autopilot and similar systems , but no car manufacturer wants to add potential liability.

Automation and the Problem of Understanding Automation is only as good or safe as our understanding of it, and we have entered the uncanny valley where understanding it in cars requires a level of driver training equivalent to that of pilots. What is the solution? It could be driver training via gamification of Autopilot and similar systems , but no car manufacturer wants to add potential liability.

It is both cheaper and easier to wall off responsibility behind warning systems and legalese, but these are passive defenses rather than active solutions.

As long as humans are in the loop, everything must be done to educate them not only to what automation can do, but what it can't. Everything must be done to prevent users from abusing it, even due to their ignorance. If this isn't done by government mandate, auto makers should do it by moral imperative. A system that works as designed does not equate with a perfect system. If perfection is " the action or process of improving something until it is faultless, or as faultless as possible ," then it must include a good faith effort to inform users of both its limitations and purpose.

What is the purpose of Tesla Autopilot and its only functionally equivalent peer, Cadillac SuperCruise? It's not safety, it's convenience. The foundational safety functionality of both systems—radar-based braking—is the core of the Automatic Emergency Braking AEB which is active under human control. All Autopilot and SuperCruise equipped vehicles offer radar-based adaptive cruise control which can maintain both speed and distance to a car in front. That any cruise control is safer with radar than without is obvious, but that additional safety is available without activation of the functionality that enables Autopilot and SuperCruise, which is active lane keeping, or what Tesla calls Autosteer.

I have greatly enjoyed using both Autopilot and SuperCruise, but I'm unaware of any study proving that active lane keeping enhances safety. They remain unable to explain it , nor has it been verified by any third party I'm aware of.

Let's find out why. Automated braking and steering may improve, but the half-life of danger will always depend on how aggressively the systems compel driver awareness and reduce human response time to takeover warnings.

As long as there's wiggle room, humans will exploit it. Given the complex nature of traffic, every millisecond counts. If driver awareness is linked to whether one's eyes are on or off the road, and response time is linked to whether one's hands are on the wheel, a conceptual safety matrix looks like this: Alex Roy How safe are series automated driving systems?

Because you can't steer around what you can't see, but you can brake for what you do. The shorter the eyes off interval the better, and this can only be reduced via a camera-based driver monitoring system. The shorter the hands off interval the better, and this can only be accomplished by a steering wheel sensor.

What happens when you put the two best series automated driving systems on the chart? Why does SuperCruise land where it does? It's got an infrared camera pointed at the driver's face. You can look away, turn your head or lean over, but the system warnings will light up within seconds. Take too long and SuperCruise will shut off. It's very hard to cheat, and I tried. Also, it has a big visual state of engagement light perfectly placed on top of the steering wheel.

Is SuperCruise on or off? There's never any doubt. Why isn't SuperCruise further to the right? Audible warnings aren't as good as visual, and because of its liberal hands off policy; you're going to need that extra second to get your hands back on the wheel. What about Tesla Autopilot?

To their credit, Tesla has consistently improved Autopilot's safety since its release in October of Unfortunately, audible warnings remain only adequate and Tesla still doesn't offer an active driver monitoring system. Unless the tiny camera above the Model 3's rear-view mirror wakes up and turns out to have been designed for this purpose, Tesla's current safety hardware is behind Cadillac's.

Furthermore, Tesla's hands off intervals are measured by a steering wheel torque sensor rather than capacitive touch. It's not that hard to cheat a torque sensor with one or more water bottles. It's very hard to cheat a capacitive sensor, and any car with heated steering is a few dollars away from enabling capacitive touch functionality.

There's only one reason not to offer capacitive touch, and that's cost. At current levels of technology, companies are selling convenience at the expense of safety. I love both Autopilot and SuperCruise, but I don't reduce my vigilance when using them.

A handset told him what to collect and put on his trolley. It allotted him a set number of seconds to find each product and counted down. If he made a mistake the scanner beeped. And it seems to me the demands of efficiency at the cost of individual's health and wellbeing - it's got to be balanced.

The scanner tracked Mr Littler's picking rate and sent his performance to managers. If it was too low, he was told he could face disciplinary action. After experiencing a ten-and-a-half-hour night shift, he said: My feet are the thing that are bothering me the most to be honest. The company said productivity targets are set objectively, based on previous performance levels achieved by the workforce. Those on the night shift work a four-day week with an hour's break per shift.
