    4 way stops seem like a very easy problem since the first person to the stop will get the right of way. easily solved by computers. The problem will be responding to abnormal situations that programmers have a very hard time anticipating.

    I’m interested in how self-driving cars will impact the insurance industry. We’re at the forefront of the telematics boom, where insurance companies are adjusting premiums based upon individual driving characteristics (i.e. speed, hard braking, etc.).

    It’s interesting that at a time when the insurance industry is embracing technology to evaluate individual driving performance, car companies are looking for ways to take the individual driver out of the equation.
