The modern day vehicle is chock full of electronics, so much so that their maintenance would require careful calibration as well as specialized equipment – which translates to a higher cost in the long run. Well, vehicles have also gotten “smarter” thanks to the kind of algorithms and systems that they have, and in the case of Tesla, a firmware update – changes in code, essentially, has resulted in a performance boost, now how about that? If one were to look at the flipside, such code could have flaws – and in the case of BMW, a security flaw did exist that made 22 million of its vehicles a potential candidate for break-ins.
Uber and court cases do seem to get acquainted with one another rather often – and in the latest incident, an Indian woman claimed that she was raped by a driver of Uber over in Delhi, and has decided to file a lawsuit against the service all the way in a US court. The 26-year old alleged victim claimed that Uber was negligent in their duty to ensure passengers’ safety, and is currently looking for unspecified damages.
