    Driveless car of future


    Technology is certainly making us do less and less, i wonder about this idea of eventually making it auto pilot. Knows it's been talked about by other manufacturer's too.

    Good debates there, lots of pros and cons.

    Somehow this movie came to mind some similarity to it in a few ways

    I think it'd be more stressful for me to have this auto-pilot thingie. I'd never trust it, even if the technology is sound. I already have a hard time letting someone else drive my car, I'm not about to let a computer do it. Control issues I guess.

    I want the mass produced, affordable flying car I was promised by now, you can have the driverless. Especially the kind that resemble normal cars like in Fifth Element.

    What's so hard about anti-gravity anyway?

    +1. If the thing is going to bomb around at barely sub sonic speeds I know I don't want to buy tires for it.

    What will likely happen is it will only be possible to fit in traffic if the computers coordinate everything. Cars will be going 480 mph with 10 cm gap between the cars. Those insisting on manual driving will be relegated to the 100 mph max zones. Before you can drive to the party it's already over. You'll feel the peer pressure to switch to Auto in your auto.
