It looks like the 2020s will mirror the 1920s as people welcome AVs with fear, trepidation, and anger; are AVs destined to fail? And, Outsight’s 3D camera can do some pretty magical things, like distinguish as between a plastic mannequin and a real person, and see ice on the road.

History repeats itself, and people will welcome in the (20)20s with the same sort of fear, trepidation, and anger, with which so many newfangled inventions ushered in the 1920s.
