IIHS: Self-driving systems aren't that, and aren't ready for prime time



Self-driving systems aren't ready for prime time, says a new report by IIHS.

The Institute tested five cars: two Teslas, a BMW, a Mercedes-Benz, and a Volvo, all with systems that earned top marks in its tests of advanced driver safety aids.

In new tests on its track and on public roads, all of the systems made mistakes that could be fatal without driver intervention.

That said, for the group of cars tested the Model 3 looks like it did well and led the pack. Would have been nice to see Cadillac's SuperCruise system tested.

Current self driving technology should not be allowed to be sold to consumers. It takes too long for a person to recover situational awareness when current systems "give up" and return control to the driver. 100% autonomous vehicles will be welcome in many situations (elderly for example), but the current level of technology simply isn't there yet.
