This is a good overview about designing driverless cars...

I wonder about "And I don’t doubt Tesla when they say that Autopilot is "almost twice as good as a person," as measured by accidents per mile" though. Tesla claims here that "This is the first known fatality in just over 130 million miles where Autopilot was activated. Among all vehicles in the US, there is a fatality every 94 million miles. Worldwide, there is a fatality approximately every 60 million miles." They're not comparing like with like though, when they're presumably in a position to do so. As they must also know how many fatalities there's been and how many miles have been traveled in Teslas when Autopilot wasn't activated. That's the data I'd like this Autopilot crash compared to.

This should prove a fun competition...

There is the possibility that George Hotz has come up with a better brain, which presumably could be connected to a hive mind to add fleet-learning. Since he's planning on becoming an Uber driver, maybe they'd be interested in his tech. I'm sure driver-less cars are in their long-term plans.
