Episode 31. Autopilot common sense; Apple’s AVs; MobilEye

We talk common sense when using semi-autonomous systems like Autopilot; Apple now the #2 autonomous vehicle company by number of CA testing permits(!); Intel’s MobilEye lands an 8 million car deal.

It’s not a fully driverless system (yet). It makes mistakes (still; and frequently). It is probably smarter than the average bear. Maybe. Occasionally. Use common sense. Don’t be stupid. Etc.

Apple in the #2 spot for autonomous car testing in California?!

Intel’s MobilEye lands an 8 million car deal
