What a world we live in, where we're considering GM hiring advanced full-stack developers to join their ranks.

 

With the idea of automated cars floating around, permeable code would certainly be a scary concept.

@Lyndon and @Cardionick. True, the auto industry itself has to take precautions to keep cars from being hacked. However, I think the responsibility extends well back beyond the car makers, with security needing to be baked in right in the chip/OS design.

The motor vehicle industry and security tech industry are certainly pursuing "precautions". But I suspect that hackers (vandals, pirates, governments, whatever) will always be involved in a cat-and-mouse game, finding new vulnerabilities and cracking through them.

Agreed. We're further along and more accurate in these regards than people may be willing to accept.

Agreed. People will not have a choice, they will just be involved.

@bulk why did the device require a babysitter? Were you supposed to also note the conditions of the traffic to compare to its results?

In the longer term, probably, and even if the "audience" don't want to participate. It will probably be possible to track GPS data in both cars (robotic or otherwise) and smartphones/personal devices, and integrate this with personal data (names, addresses, etc.). That will definitely help transportation planning, but...

Good morning Mister Blue, we've got our eyes on you.

But, it may be that taking a novel approach to data collection might reveal some important points not usual in typical surveying. Of course the guy on the street with a sign might be a little too creative, but targeting the correct audience and making the measurements "live" would bring in some better data than and after the fact collection. Using those phones and GPS is going to be a way to get the live data assuming the audience wants to participate.

 Predicting traffic will remain an enigma because we can never anticipate an accident or other issue not related to volume.


 

Well, some predictive analytics researchers are probably convinced they will achieve absolute clairvoyance. Before then, however, traffic analysts can't predict any specific accident, but they do predict approximate accident totals, sometimes even by time period, based on statistical analysis. From this, they predict probable delays in traffic flow.
