Chapter 4: Software: difficult to verify standards of care

Hannah Y. Lim


Chapter 4 examines the software on which autonomous vehicles are built, both hard coded software as well as machine learning algorithm software. It explains how machine learning algorithms functions, including the different types, ie supervised learning, unsupervised learning, semi-supervised learning and reinforcement learning and expose their limitations. It also expounds neural networks and the unreliability and limitations in their use. A standard of care is then developed for the different types of software found on autonomous vehicles and an analysis is made on the challenges posed by evidentiary proof.
