    I thought this was worth sharing:

    Bring it on, I'm ready. If (relatively) perfected, it would mean MUCH safer roads and likely faster travel as well. Maybe something where on interstates you have to go autonomous and on local roads you can drive (ala I, Robot)

    This is some weeks old but relevant here. About the autonomous Google cars that have been driving around these parts:

    Just a thought: "Coming soon - autonomous street view camera cars!"
    The real drivers on the current ones just have to drive a pre-programmed course.

    Saw this driving down PCH in Santa Monica a few months ago. The guy in the right passenger seat had a giant laptop he was intent on and I did not notice the driver doing anything unusual (like not driving). I snapped a photo of the car thinking it was a street view car.

    Google gets green light - Nevada changes law to allow driver-less cars.

    How many years 'til human drivers will only be allowed to drive on specific roadways because it would be too dangerous to let them drive on the main highways?
