Had a good laugh at the reactions. A driverless train crashed in Germany 7 years ago... Ignoring the countless accidents that have happened with traditional systems.
If they do it right, it can only be a good thing.
Edit: "Ah hello! computers break down". So apparently human errors are a myth?
Three systems that i am aware of that are driverless, Singapore, Dubai and Vancouver and I have used them all. I have 100% confidence in the driverless systems and if we wind the clock back 20-25 years in NSw there was still alcohol related incidents. Then we have Waterfall a combination of natural causes that killed passengers because a safety system was over riden and a cultural that prevented guards acting as back up. Then we have V-set up the back of IP, numeorus other train into train collisions often with two drivers in last 20-25 years since the Monorail was built including two head on's in Qld, one with EMU's and other with spark locos for which the cause is only known to the dead drivers.
Driverless systems only fail when not grade seperated, but Rio Tinto is about test this boundry with 20,000 t iron ore trains.
Once again the Union forgetting what its actually for and trying to scaremunger the population with bull smeg data. No wonder support is on wane.
