Autopilot Blues

According to recent surveys about half of drivers don’t trust autopilot in cars. The reason why is very simple but car manufacturers seem to not getting it at all. Trust is closely correlated to how well autopilot can guess and then approximate owner’s driving habits — reaction times to events, braking profile, interplay with other cars, behavior in traffic jams and on acceleration lanes etc. Autopilot must simulate human’s flawed ways of handling a car to gain driver’s trust. Make them perfect by intentionally making them imperfect! How hard is that?!
