The biggest problem of the level 3 self-driving cars are the drivers

I’m following the evolution of the self-driving technologies with a lot of interest. Many automotive companies say that by 2020/2022 they will commercialize autonomous cars that will reach the level 4 or 5 of the SAE International Automated Driving standards.
Below the table that is commonly adopted by all the automotive industry.

Wired points the level 3 human problem in a very clear way: humans are not capable to maintain their attention if they are not interested or required to. For simplifying, a crash in self-driving mode cannot be avoided thanks to the intervention of the driver that in the meanwhile could be reading a newspaper or watching a video.

Why Mobility Technologies

I love cars and motorcycle since when I was a teen. I remember my mother’s Fiat 500, my father’s Alfa 33, my neighbour Citroen 2cv and the Motobekane Moby parked in my box for years. I’m Antonio Patti, I’m employed at the transport company of Milan and I created “Mobility Technologies” because I want to put together my passion for automotive and my work experience in public transportation.

I love all the transport and mobility products like cars, motorcycle, industrial vehicles, buses, boats, airplanes etc. I’m interested in the mobility industry specially from the point of view of UX (user experience) and product design. So ADAS (advanced driver assistance systems), digital infotainment systems, interior and exterior designs are my great passion and the main topic of “Mobility Technologies”.

For the launch of the site I decided to organize the contents in four main sections:

  • Vehicles Design, where I post all kind of vehicles interesting design.
  • Personal Mobility, where I post about vehicles and technologies regarding consumers and industrial mobility.
  • Shared Mobility, where I post about public transport, smart cities and shared mobility.
  • MT Studies where I share my drafts, my concepts and my projects.
  • News Selection where I automatically post all the interesting news that I read.
