Mercedes autonomous cars will protect occupants before pedestrians

Mercedes says the answer to the million-dollar autonomous question is quite simple

Autonomous cars are going to make driving in the future much safer, but they'll also come with their own moral and ethical issues. There'll be many times when an autonomous car encounters something called a no-win traffic situation – an incident in which there'll be either a pedestrian or passenger casualty.

Isaak Asimov made it simple with his robotics laws as early as 1942
A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
A robot must obey the orders it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws.

The ethical answer to the question is that the operator of the machine must have the opportunity to programm the machines reactions.

Therefore I personally think that every vehicle must have two modes.
Altruism mode - kill me
Protection mode - kill them.
And these should be packages that you could decide when you place a car order.


For sale AMG 55 SLK Obsidian Black, parktronic, airscarf, kill them mode, 19" tyres and reverse camera.
