Last week’s poll: priority technology for the driverless car

In last week’s poll we asked for your opinions on the greatest challenges to vehicle autonomy and the results point firmly to legal rather than technological barriers.

Poll_980Out of 414 votes, just over a third (34%) took this view, closely followed by 29% who thought detection and avoidance were the biggest technological hurdles to overcome in vehicle autonomy.

A total of 78 votes (19%) were cast in favour of enhanced anti-hacking systems, and 44 votes (11%) took the view that connectivity with vehicles and infrastructure is key to autonomy.

The remaining 7% thought the challenges to vehicle autonomy remain elsewhere, opting instead for the ‘None of the above’ option.
