I found this article interesting, as it brings up a really good point. This article’s main idea is that we will never know how these type of cars will react in unexpected situations. Hence, it is essential to conduct a driving test. This is a good way to prevent any accidents and keep the riders safe. To date, governments have tested cars as machines, ensuring steering, brakes and other functions work properly.

This article relates to engineering because it shows how it is important to double check that all functions are working the right way. A part of engineering is to ensure that all the parts are working as expected for safety.
