Coding is an important skill to learn, even if you don't plan to be a programmer because it could help you with logical communications. If students learned how to code, they could be able to better understand the technology around them and probably get inspired to make new ways or ideas about technology. It also helps with written and verbal skills. Challenge #1 is about figuring out how my partner and I are going code the vehicle to go in a figure 8 and the logic statement I will use to tackle the challenge is "How are we going to successfully make our Altino car move smoothly into a figure 8". For the Altino car, we had to use "Go", "Steering", and "Delay" in order for the car to move around the obstacle. I felt very stressed and frustrated throughout the whole process of trying to experiment with different codes because each code my partner and I tried was not successful.
I would NOT trust an autonomous vehicle to give me a ride because accidents could happen. For example, If the car has a malfunction, the people in the car will be in great danger and could get seriously hurt or even killed if going at a fast speed. It's also uncertain how autonomous vehicles could direct through hazards like roadblocks or specific local driving laws. For example, turning right on a red light in different states. The computers could sometimes have a hard time recognizing different local and state regulations with care to the road. I have a strong feeling autonomous vehicles will be used in the future to carry out complex tasks like an ambulance responding to accidents because people will want to use technology more and see what people, who designs and constructs the autonomous cars can do to make situations like these simple.
