Self-driving cars being programmed to react in life-and-death situations


Wyman Williams, development officer for the Texas A&M University-Commerce College of Business and long-time car dealership owner, says as we get very close to the day when self-driving cars will be on the road, the developers are programming into the cars how to react in life-and-death situations, when either pedestrians or the driver and the car's passengers may be killed depending on the car's actions.

John Mark Dempsey is the host of the public interest program The Blacklands Café from KETR News. Dempsey is also the play-by-play announcer for Commerce Tigers Football on 88.9 FM and on ketr.org.
