There’s an old proverb that dates back to at least the year 1670 and declares that sauce for the goose is also sauce for the gander.
A more modern and altogether familiar version is the assertion that what is good for the goose is good for the gander. That’s a saying that we all know well. In today’s world, this ostensibly suggests that something applicable in one instance is likely applicable in another (consult your favored online dictionary for further elaboration).
I often highlight cutting-edge technology bringing about AI-based true self-driving cars. I like to highlight foundational R&D work taking place in research labs that are focused on creating autonomous vehicles.
The thing is, a lot of the autonomous tech will also end up in human-driven cars too. This might seem surprising. Many assume that the tech devised to aid AI-based autonomous driving would solely be used by autonomous driving vehicles. But it turns out that there are numerous handy ways in which the tech derived for self-driving cars can be leveraged for human-driven vehicles.
Not every piece of tech that goes into a self-driving car is necessarily going to find its way into a human-driven vehicle. Some contraptions will; some will not. The tech that gets crossed over into a human-driven car is bound to have other aspects included, recasting the tech and making it more readily accessible or usable by humans versus when the target “user” being an AI driving system (note that I’ve put the word “user” into quotes since I don’t want to suggest or imply that today’s AI is somehow human-like).
The overarching question is this: Can the advanced tech devised for self-driving cars be leveraged for use in human-driven cars on a crossover or crisscrossing basis?
Well, I’ve already tipped my hand and propounded my answer, which is a resounding yes, albeit the seemingly outsized affirmation is tempered with the strident precaution to mindfully undertake any such crossovers.
Before we get deeper into the matter, let’s make sure we are on the same page about what constitutes a self-driving car.
