Well, the unmanned aircrafts are normal in modern warfare but ground vehicles are more complicated (think of the Mars rover expedition). 

I think they can keep pushing the express lanes that are for AI control only.

I agree and maybe this is the reason for explaining car's control by voice is not yet delivered. Sometimes we have heard Army has adopted similar controls for military vehicles, including helicopters and jets. Probably, as happened in other areas, civil technology will adopt solutions previously tested (and used) by them.

Indeed, they probably have a big test unit going on but it's different when you start mixing consumer electronics directly with safety issues, with deadly consequences.

I can't think of another consumer electronic that could be more harmful than your car stereo taking over control.

Yes Mr.Roques, I can. I was meaning like this: since quite a long ago, several companies, especially from India, have started business in off-shore services for sw development and testing. Good results in terms of customers' satisfaction and work's outstanding have been achieved in the area of IT, ERP, telecom, aerospace and so on. Imo, those talents and model could be applied also for testing services in the area automotive integration discussed here (smart driving & smart phone), it has been recognized is a process to pay attention a lot.

Hello,

Can you further explain what you said? I didn't get what you meant about the test processes.

Hello

to answer the question on the article, I'll say the answer is YES.

as much as the technology will facilite having a conversation in the car while driving, it is still a transportation vehicle, we will not live and eat in the car.

This is another perspective of the eco-system smart phone-smart driving are potentially going to create. According to your thoughts,  I believe that integration could help human senses in discovering faster potential dangerous events or things with possible impact on safety. I don't believe that main sense of that integration will be in the direction of human senses' replacement.

I am quite convinced knowledge in conceive, design and especially in testing smart phone-smart driving integration, is potentially a new business to launch.

The question is like someone sitting on top of the vehicle without a belt. Any sudden change in velocity can end up in a serious crash. Smart phone and Smart driving may co-exist if properly designed, proved and tested appropriate. But it can be too-much knowledge-too much trouble. In human, as a result of multiple medications, we do have drug to grug interaction. We can not rule out device to device interaction in electronics also. We've got to think of what we are askiing for!

I agree, it is a critical issue. It could be very interesting for example to deep understand tests' processes and methodogy to perform in order to avoid situations you have mentioned. I believe who will hold that knowledge, could in fact bring in the market a unique competence and maybe new business opportunities never thougth before, will raise.

It will be very dangerous! once the app takes control over your vehicle, you lose control and maybe a hacker (or glitch) can cause an accident!

But it would be interesting to see what happens.
