so when this thing runs over a couple of school kids, I wonder what the cover up story will be

The NSW government is going to trial autonomous buses in Coffs Harbour and Armidale

assuming it gets reported

They need a virtual city and virtual environment to run these things and to check what the consequences could be before actually doing this.

Something I read couple of days ago about a spec for autonomous vehicles, is that it should have provision to pull over and stop if requested to do so by the cops.  I hadn't  thought of that.  I mean how would a driverless vehicle know it was supposed to stop for a cop, and how would it even work?  If it was done with tech, then there'd be a pirate version of the gizmo that made it happen on eBay a week later, and irresponsible people would be making robo-cars stop all over the place.  It would even be a little bit funny until one was stopped in the middle of a junction and hit by cross traffic.

But getting back to Graham's concerns, would an autonomous vehicle do overtakes like this?  There is some seriously bad driving in New Zealand.

I can't imagine a school bus with no adult supervision.
