Philip Koopman commented for TechRadar on the challenges that will need to be overcome in order to achieve safe, widespread deployment of self-driving vehicles. “History across many different other types of life-critical systems has shown that to be safe you need transparency on your safety process and you need to do an independent safety assessment,” says Koopman. “This includes ensuring that all relevant safety standards have been met as well as ensuring that novel aspects of the system have a reasonable explanation for safety backed by sufficient evidence that the system has been built in a safe way.” Read the article here.
