Re: I wonder how this will play out?
Agreed, though with autonomous vehicles speeds could potentially increase and with people driving less, their experience won't be anywhere near as high as it is today. There would need to be a stronger licensing system for those that still want to drive, especially at higher speeds.

Re: I wonder how this will play out?
Be careful what you wish for. If you recall the move "The Day The Earth Stood Still" imagine a trojan that stops the car all together. The other aspect is "big brother" hooking in to gather data. The Google Car will map your social networking against your vehicle & I imagine will take you where "it" wants you to go.


We witness smaller circumstances already that cause issues when the on-board computer in your car dies & takes the vehicle dark.


There needs to be a manual over-ride.

Re: I wonder how this will play out?
Perhaps in smaller countries this is feasible. I can tell you the cost to do this in the US would not be. Even if they only did this to the interstate highways, that leaves millions of miles of road (most of which would be used by these very vehicles) untouched. The individual states already struggle to maintain current road systems - there's no way they could afford to put this on local and state roads.

Don't even get me started on China - they wouldn't do this anyway as there is no return on investment.

Unless the electric car manufacturers foot the bill to the tune of billions (or more likelt, trillions) of dollars to rework the roads (and maintain them!), I don't know that this is the "future" of our auto system in the world. There's just no money in it.

@Gary_EL: After seeing Google car in action I think I would feel safer if an AI was at the steering wheel. The google car had no alarming accidents that would need attention.

Re: I wonder how this will play out?
@Whoopty: I heard about this. UK is having roads that can charge an electric automobile and this would bring about massive change. We sure are looking into a hybrid car future.

@williamarthur: I won't forgive them if their self driving cars box me up during peak traffic hours.

Re: I wonder how this will play out now ?
With companies like uber,google,apple and ford already declaring they are running for autonomous car am sure in 5 years we will have a technology that can change the way we commute. Worlds best 5 companies working on the same area surely shows how deeply they thing this can impact our life.
