The Volvo Test Facility

An article from Wired a week or so ago about The Volvo automated driving test facility.  It simulates urban, rural, and highway environments.  It looks quite well thought out.  Sadly, Volvo doesn't have much online about what they are up to, but you can see what they are willing to share here, and even download a sharp looking brochure.

Ethics of Automated Driving

An interesting article on Wired about the importance of allowing the "driver" of an automated driving vehicle to make choices in situations where there is no right answer.

On a personal level, I appreciate the idea of being able to choose what will happen in a no win situation.  I would not want either the government or, god-forbid, corporations to make the choice for me.
