Dr. Cummings presents her recipe for unsafe autonomous systems in planes, trains, and automobiles to members of the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board. At points, she touches on Cadillac (Super Cruise), Tesla (autopilot and driver monitoring systems), and even Boeing 737 MAX.

Check it out if you've got an hour to spare. Find out why she says some trains should have no conductors, while Teslas should have no Autopilot.

With vehicle technology getting more sophisticated year after year, the autonomous operation of cars, trucks, and even airplanes is on the near horizon. How will this technology change the way we drive and fly? What are the potential sociotechnical impacts of this type of engineering?

Dr. Missy Cummings – a former Navy fighter pilot and current expert on autonomous system collaboration from Duke University answers these questions for an NTSB audience.
