18 Feb How Kip is driving research & innovation! Curtin University's autonomous bus



How do you feel about driverless vehicles? Are you ready to let a machine make potentially life-or-death decisions for you?
Curtin is the first Australian University to purchase a commercial driverless bus. Named Kip, after Prime Minister John Curtin’s pet dog, the bus will ‘drive’ research into the ways autonomous vehicles might impact on all our lives. And some of the questions they will be answering are quite surprising.

    One thing is that if buildings were designed so these vehicles could go directly into them this would take people out of the harsh environment into a safe clean area. This would make it better as well for PWD People With Disabilities. This could be connected to apartment complexes, office buildings, hotels, sporting arenas, stores, malls, and many more places where you can go point to point without stepping outside. This would make this type of service more attractive. Running it 24/7 365 day's per year would help seal the deal.

    one way I believe to eradicate this fear or concern would be to give the owner of the vehicle the ability to take back control of the vehicle seamlessly if they want to. It may require more work to pull of but it will reassure more people to use such vehicles and reduce the fear of machine error. It's about trust. i would be more likely to trust an autonomous driver if i know that I'm still in charge if i want to. That alone would do the job of human psyche and most likely there would not be the need to even take back control. It's just the reassurance that I can if i need to.

    this is awesome. I was also concerned about the human phychoogy factor and how that it would be a big challenge to convince your average person to sit back and relax while a car drives him. I believe one big way to overcome this would be to give the owners the opportunity to take back control of the vehicle seamlessly if they so desire. Not only would this reassure more people, it would also eliminate the fear of machine errors.

    Hi Im from Salford University in Manchester, I was wondering if I could use a short clip of the autonomous vehicle to use for our news program? I will credit the short clip too.
