Not so fast, self-driver

BMW board member Dr Ian Robertson says modern autonomous systems are not ready for the real world, and took a swipe at companies who are keen to fast-track driverless tech to market.

“It’s not right and some companies are learning their lesson that this is not a robust technology yet,” he said.

“There will be some false claims, shall we say, which has ultimately been proven to be the case. We’re BMW so we’re going to do it seriously.”
