This image was taken upon setting up the driving simulator for testing, ultimately the projector was moved further rearward to increase the size of the footage.
Drivers' of Autonomous Vehicles will still be required to reengage and control the vehicle at a moments notice. At some point, a situation will develop on the roads that Autonomous Systems can't efficiently cope with, whether this be an ethical decision or simply a miscalculation. At this point, human intervention will be imperative.
