Re: [SystemSafety] Another unbelievable failure (file system overflow)

I'll throw in another little wrinkle, major software failures seem to correlate to changes in the context in which the system is used or operated.

So let's take that Google robot car and drop it into snarly traffic mayhem on a temporary bypass during afternoon peak hour in Marseille. Or negotiating shared traffic space in Mumbai.

I wonder how well it would operate then?

Dear Brian

Will your safety evaluation be "white box" or "black box"?

Are you permitted to attack the vehicles, to provide a real-world environment as part of the assessment?

evaluating the safety of the driverless car experiments being

conducted on the Ames campus here in Mountain View (the headquarters

home almost daily. Without specific “metrics” to evaluate how these

vehicles behave, from my subjective knothole, they seem to respond to

various traffic situations just like cars with drivers. Nissan is

also about to begin AV experiments here in our area.
