[quote:Anonymous Coward 961432:MV8yMTE2MDYwXzM1Njk1MzYwXzM1NjA3NjNB] [quote:Cosmic Traveler:MV8yMTE2MDYwXzM1Njk1MDc1XzVFNTcwREFE] Self driving cars would suck! This will never fly in America. (But then I said that about puters too) [/quote] I don't think they would fly in that consumers would have very low demand - except from liberal greenies who support any tyrannical control of their lives in the false belief of "saving the environment". People love the autonomy that automobiles provide, why would they cede that autonomy to computers programmed by traffic control engineers? I guess I could see public transportation services, maybe arterials dedicated to the use of these vehicles. Like maybe several vehicles parked in a public lot until people get in and swipe a card or something, but busses are far more economical. . [/quote]
Not long ago, self-driving cars seemed like science fiction. But Google is now operating so-called autonomous cars in California and Nevada, and last week at the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Toyota and Audi unveiled prototypes for self-driving cars to sell to ordinary car buyers. (Google co-founder Sergey Brin said last year he expects his company to have them ready for the general public within five years.) In a report backing self-driving cars, the consulting firm KPMG and the Center for Automotive Research recently predicted that driving is “on the brink of a new technological revolution.”
