You know the drill. I find the smartest, edgiest, and hopefully sexiest people I know who have the characteristics of entrepreneurship to contribute advice to The Chancebending Network. Today we’re talking with Michael DeKort of Dactle.
Michael DeKort thinks we could be nearing the end of the autonomous vehicle industry…
“The autonomous vehicle industry is literally on the brink of imploding.
Virtually every company in the sector who is developing autonomous vehicles uses public shadow or safety driving to do so.
It is a myth that using public shadow driving is the best or only way to create this technology. That the casualties it has created and will create are necessary evils. And that this technology will ever lead remotely close to a legitimate driverless vehicle.
It is impossible to drive the one trillion miles or spend over $300B to stumble and restumble on all the scenarios necessary to complete the effort. Many of which are accident scenarios no one will want you to run once let alone thousands of times. You also cannot survive the thousands of needless casualties you will create trying. And finally, as the public, press and governments are figuring out, handover cannot be made safe for most complex scenarios, by any monitoring and notification system, because they cannot provide the time to regain proper situational awareness and do the right thing the right way.
But there is a better way.”
When we started The Chancebending Network, we had people like Michael in mind. Whether it’s automotive or a startup, our goal is to connect entrepreneurs with the right information when they need it. We’re doing this with online coaching, access to a community of professional entrepreneurs, and business advice.
