Autonomous vehicle crashes in Arizona

Reading about this made me realize the fundamental problem with this whole self driving car concept.

With normal cars that are driven, when things fail they don't pull all cars from being driven except in rare instances with certain recalls, even then, there is never been a situation where all cars of a certain model were banned from driving, because the basic design and assembly of cars is reliable. Cars are tested enough to know that their basically simple design works properly before they leave the factory. With normal cars when the driver fails by driving drunk or texting or distractions and getting into the crash, the driver can be pulled from driving the vehicle or other vehicles, but the car design remains drive able.

NOT SO with driverless cars. What we have here is the idea of REPLACING the driver with a machine and sensors, and this is wrought with serious problems and i think will NEVER be workable in the real world of driving. We are trying to replace humans with machines in a very complex environment. The real world of driving has so many factors and aspects to it, no machine can compare to the human ability to process the information.

The article stated: the company’s self-driving arm has seen little progress in the overall reliability of its autonomous systems.
As of the beginning of March, safety drivers had to take back control an average of once per .8 miles.

I think we FIRST need to create a human robot that can clean house every day without breaking anything, then we can look at machines driving themselves and us around. Autonomous cars are likely never going to fly, litterally and figurratively. There's too many things in it's way all over the place going different speeds, too many reflections it can misjudge where a human wouldn't, on and on. Airplanes that "fly themselves" don't have these problems.

Volvo says self driving cars better without humans as backup
great now just as soon as they create robot housekeepers like the one in the Jetsons, that cook and clean, and not just robot vacuum cleaners, ones that shovel the show in winter, and show us how great their cars drive through snow (they can't judge snow and rain very well at all) then we are getting somewhere, I mean like even in the Jetsons the vehicles had to be driven by humans
