Drinking under the influencePosted: March 11, 2021
In an online seminar regarding the design of autonomous vehicles, one of the researchers was discussing the benefits of autonomous vehicle systems. He said one is that there will be no worries about folks operating motor vehicles while they were drinking under the influence. This is a mashup of “(driving) under the influence” (intoxicated) and “stay alive: don’t drink and drive” (slogan for anti drinking and driving). Seems to me one should remain sober even while “driving” an autonomous vehicle. A tip of the hat to Martin Pietrucha for hearing this one and passing it on!
