Default GM"s Cruise Delays Launch of Driverless Taxi's Indefinitely

The hype finally meets reality:

GM Cruise LLC, the autonomous-vehicle unit of General Motors Co., confirmed Wednesday it will delay indefinitely its plan to deploy driverless taxis in the streets of San Francisco explicit acknowledgement that hype generated by tech enthusiasts and investors is outpacing both engineering reality and safety concerns.

"The technology is simply not ready yet," said Sam Abuelsamid, principal analyst at Navigant Research who focuses on mobility. "It is not sufficiently safe, reliable and robust to be able to handle all these situations that people are going to encounter in the real world."
