Rage against the machines
San Francisco residents have been laying down beatings on defenceless driverless cars and robots.
Reports have surfaced of people showing their dislike of autonomous tech in a very physical fashion. One taxi driver hopped out of his car and slapped the window of General Motors’ Cruise driverless car; another incident saw a car of the same make under attack from a pedestrian. Meanwhile, a Knightscope autonomous security robot used by an SPCA animal shelter to shoo away homeless people got pushed over, covered with a tarp and smeared with BBQ sauce.
