    Vehicles go through a much more stringent software testing process vs your computer or phone. If you app doesn't open or crash, it's annoying. If a safety feature isn't working correctly on a vehicle, it can have serious consequences.

    I'd be interested in seeing further details—the data logging from the car should indicate what inputs the 'driver' attempted to provide (eg. steering-wheel / pedal) while the car was in autopilot mode. Sometimes the simplest answer is correct, e.g. with the Audi unintended acceleration where the #1 issue was user error and pedal confusion.

    The Tesla statement is still in the nj.com article:

    Hey can anyone say 737 MAX 8?

    Turns out it's now been proven that computer software is very efficient when it comes to killing large numbers of humans.

    Good luck to those who want to put their lives in the hands of a machine. Guess you forgot that machines are made by humans and as such are subject to abject failure.

    I knew someone would bring back this thread ....

    The person who invented the wheel has helped countless people and killed a lot in the process . I think Orville and Wilbur would be horrified at what their invention has morphed into . Someone should be doing jail time on this one ! They should have issued an AD and admitted the fix was more complicated . Make damn sure the pilots are aware of the problem .

    I deliberately waited until the preliminary investigation into the Ethiopian crash was completed.

    And I think that all the facts surrounding Boeing's changes to the 737 which were made with nothing but profits in mind will come out...turns out that Ralph Nader's niece was among the passengers killed on the Ethiopian flight. Unsafe at any speed!

    I'm sure glad I don't own any Boeing stock.

    I don't know man, this seems like a damned if you do, damned if you don't type scenario. Just 10 years ago Air France flight 447 crashed into the atlantic solely because the automated systems shut off and the pilots couldn't identify a clear stall.

    http://www.slate.com/blogs/the_eye/2...ion_on_99.html

    https://www.vanityfair.com/news/busi...ight-447-crash

    Both these articles seem to blame the automation, but the pilot error is absurd. A stall and stall recovery is literally day 1, lesson 1 in flight school. You can't just rely on humans all the time either.

    That Air France flight was on an Airbus by the way, so it isn't unique to Boeing.

    Also, I'm probably never flying Air France.
