I wonder if there is more than one of these rigs.
Yesterday on a PDX freeway, I drove along side of one (unloaded) that looked just like that.

There EVERYWHERE, run you can't hide. Save yourself.

And that one is only a baby, don't get between it and it's mama.

Ran into Mama on a little road here a couple months ago. I think she was hauling a transformer for the new gas-fired power plant in Asylum Township...

What could go wrong?

They would have an easier time if they connected 234 to 66 so they could make it a loop.

And so it begins.

I am now sure that my next purchased vehicle will be a self-driving one (currently drive a 2012 model, so plenty of years left, but I drive it 20,000+ miles per year, so not as many years as you might think.)

I've been pondering the automated car vs. jaywalking pedestrian problem. Once pedestrians know a car will stop for them, they will step out in front of it, even if the traffic signals say not to.

So I bet eventually, the cars will also have cameras, and government facial recognition will get to the point that tickets will be mailed to jaywalkers.

Mister Speaker, as the representative of the great community of Wellington, where much of the Governor's loyal support resides, I most strongly object to the burden of this travesty upon our Grandmothers, Mothers, babies, and puppies/kittens.

I would think Google and Apple have enough $ to build their own test loop
and hire 10,000 drivers and 4000 pedestrians to get in their way.

I also wonder how they will handle "real drivers" using hand motions inside their cars
to indicate they are giving/taking their right of way.
... after all that is why the front windshields can not be darkened glass

I guess I'm also just glad you people in the East are the guinea pigs,
and will be the ones who work out/in the kinks [pun intended]

Google has already racked up nearly a million miles in CA, NV, MI, and FL.

glatt 06-03-2015 08:38 PM

I drove alongside one in CA for a block or so.
