In­dia to ban driver­less cars to pro­tect jobs

APC Australia - - Techbrief -

In­dia’s transport and high­ways min­is­ter Nitin Gad­kari has stated re­cently that, if he has any­thing to do with it, the coun­try “won’t al­low driver­less cars”. How­ever, rather than com­ing from a safety stand­point — al­though in­tro­duc­ing driver­less cars in In­dia would be quite the chal­lenge — Gad­kari is more con­cerned about the pro­fes­sional driv­ers who would lose their jobs should au­ton­o­mous ve­hi­cles be­come wide­spread across the coun­try.
