For safety Google Self-Driving cars must also record the driver

We all know that the most hotly debate topic of the year refers to the privacy scandal started by a former employee of NSA, Edward Snowden. A new member of the scandal is Google, which has been included in the scandal. They want to have their own self-driving cars every more the owner makes according to the proposition of top US safety official Deborah Hersman. The pro argument Google brings says that the new cars already come with a black box that can register some details on driving, but the wrong side is that the information gathered are not relevant to the self-driving vehicles. Well, they do help find the car in an emergency situation. On the other hand, autonomous cars have been designed to avoid emergency situations in the first place and this is the main reason for which they are being appreciated in the first place. Returning to the first scandal mentioned above, we have to say that there is more proof regarding privacy fears that existed before and which are now a lot more. As it turns out, if we had the impression that there are only results of the imagination, the situation is pretty clear, and the theory is now certainty. At an annual meeting at the Governors Highway Safety Association a speech was offered by Deborah Hersman who declared that every person that owns a driverless car needs to see on the front end that there are sufficient data that indicate their safety. The woman continued with data recording capabilities is also mandatory only because when there is an event, you need to know what happened and analyze the situation. Well, being a very new notion a lot of skeptical ideas will continue to appear.
