Sam joins Leo to talk about CES and what we can expect to see with car technology. Automakers and suppliers have been coming to CES since 2007 when Ford Sync was announced during the Microsoft Keynote. Then GM did a Keynote the year after.
The driver of the Tesla Model X that crashed on March 23rd did have the autopilot mode engaged. This comes after Uber's deadly crash with a pedestrian, where it has been determined that the self-driving car had not been operating safely. Tesla responded that the driver should have put his hands on the wheel to intervene. Strange curves and barriers can cause problems for the autopilot mode. It's important that any safety driver stay alert when the car is in self-driving mode.
