Le Système d'intéligence artificielle de Google est le conducteur!...

Google's AI System Is the 'Driver' in Self-Driving Cars, NHTSA Rules
eWeek (02/10/16) Jaikumar Vijayan 

The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has granted a Google request that the artificial-intelligence (AI) system behind its self-driving vehicles be considered the "driver" of the vehicle under federal automobile safety laws. The decision changes the definition of "driver," which has been in place for more than 100 years. Google is one of several companies working on delivering fully autonomous vehicles over the next few years, but they are struggling with how to get the vehicles to comply with federal and state automobile safety requirements. In November 2015, Chris Urmson, director of Google's self-driving car project, sent a letter to NHTSA asking how the agency would interpret certain provisions in the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards within the context of self-driving vehicles. The biggest question Google had was how it could certify its Self-Driving System (SDS) AI technology to meet federal motor vehicle safety standards. Google asked that SDS be considered a "driver" under federal law because having controls that would enable a human to interact with the vehicle's operations would be detrimental to safety. "Even if it were possible for a human occupant to determine the location of Google's steering control system, and sit immediately behind it, that human occupant would not be capable of actually driving the vehicle as described by Google," NHTSA determined.
