1. The rabbit hole

Safety is fundamental to human existence, encompassing not just our physical well-being but our emotional and psychological states as well. When we talk about safety, we usually picture comfort, protection, and the absence of danger. But it’s not always so straightforward. Take the pandemic, for example. We all tried to stay safe by staying home, […]

2. The evolution of safety

Developing safe automation takes time. Currently, our focus is on reducing fatalities and serious injuries. However, as our technology progresses, automation will gradually become so safe, reliable, consistent, and efficient that virtually any collision can be avoided. We’ll raise an extra glass when automation reaches a point where it can prevent fender-benders or even the […]

3. When the shift hits the fan

Are we imposing unrealistic requirements on automation? Should we be more relaxed in determining an AD system’s capabilities? Or are we simply fulfilling our responsibilities? Let’s explore the realities a self-driving car would face. In the world of autonomous driving, the term “safe” is generally defined similarly to how it would be for a human […]

4. Gotta have principles

Consider this: A broken-down truck is standing on the shoulder of a highway. A person in front of the truck walks out into the lane, trying to cross the road. At the same time, a car passes at high speed. In this scenario, a fatal collision is inevitable. It all happens too fast. No automated system in […]

5. Belts and braces

Some of us find it hard to trust a machine to take control of something as important as driving. We might worry that the AI could make a mistake or fail, resulting in catastrophe. It’s still a relatively new technology, and we might be uncomfortable with the idea of not having a human driver at […]

6. Zenseact and the software factory

The widespread availability of unsupervised automation is years away. But that doesn’t mean the fundamental technology isn’t here. Instead, the challenge lies in deploying the software and continuously improving it based on its performance in traffic. Such a task requires a finely tuned engineering machine. In this discussion, we’ll focus on this aspect – which […]
