But we have jets in the sky on autopilot mixed with other aircraft in manual control relying on some fairly basic technology (not 100% safe) to keep them separated. Obviously there aren't pedestrians in the sky (except the odd skydiver ) but birds are common, and birdstrike is an accepted risk for air travel, it can bring down a jet full of passengers.

3. Interaction between autonomous vehicles and those with drivers is already resulting in accidents.

At one stage it even detected movement through a hedge, that the passenger couldn't see, and so slowed the car. I wouldn't be surprised in the 'autonomous vehicle' future if there were less accidents. The car might just do a better job stopping to avoid a child than a person (distracted by radio/mobile phone/breakfast/alcohol/being a tosser).

So?in the above scenario, probably the child would be at fault. Or the parents for not supervising!
And if that is what is written in the law, that is just fine.
As long as the accountability is clearly defined.

Simple really

? This paper presents the implementation of two
methods for real-time trajectory planning.
The first method follows the Partial Motion
Planning approach, and the second method uses 5 th degree
(quintic) polynomials to generate a detailed spatio-temporal
description of a trajectory to be performed.

In the warehouse at work, the autonomous forklifts have been known to collide.

"...

According to the WA Department of Mines and Petroleum, the control room operator had programmed the autonomous haul truck to turn right at a pre-defined intersection and carry out a loop so it could be repositioned underneath an excavator on the pit floor.

It went on to state that change management processes for planning and assigning roads in the control system were inadequate, and that while an awareness system had been installed in the water cart to allow drivers to monitor autonomous trucks? paths at the time of the collision the water cart driver was not aware of the intended actions of the autonomous truck.

BHP confirmed the incident occured on one of their operations - albeit a year ago - telling Australian Mining that ?in August 2014, a manned water cart and an autonomous truck collided at BHP Billiton Iron Ore?s Autonomous Haulage Production Trial at Jimblebar.

?No one was injured as a result of the incident.

?A thorough investigation into the incident has been conducted and measures have been implemented to prevent the incident from occurring again.?

The spokesperson added that this one-off incident has not dampened the miner?s push into automation, stating that ?autonomous operations at Jimblebar are ongoing?.

The DMP went on to call for the elimination, or at the very least mitigation, of manned activities within autonomous mining areas.

It called for greater training of workers in their interactions with autonomous vehicles..."

8. If an autonomous vehicle was made fully aware of all the dangers it faced on the open road, it would stay in its garage and whimper quietly, while sucking on its power cord.

Isn't that 'fear-mongering' of awareness the basis for science fiction stuff like 'Skynet' and the movie Terminator? Sarah Conner, is that you?

Interesting how an autonmous vehicle would deal with an animal strike,
As a Pilot I would suggest that any comparison to aviation needs to be compared in context.
The comparison, to have any meaning, would require formations of 1000's of aircraft at varying speeds, phases of flight and separations of meters from the same number in opposite and crossing directions. With the added bonus of pedestrians and wildlife and weather Interspersed for amusement.
The only fully autonomous aircraft are Miles not meters from others and of a frequency that makes a country road look quiet, with the exception being military to military
Not saying it ( auto cars) won't or can't happen. I know it will one day just not while manned machines are on the road.
