The biggest what-if is the human driver. Humans are far more unpredictable than machines. Interestingly, the biggest technical challenge could potentially occur at the beginning, when the machines are in the minority, and therefore have to deal with millions of unpredictable humans.

I don't think autonomous cars wil ever be "common." There are too many situations in driving that sesnsors could not respond to. There is always the unexpected happening that requires a drivers response that is unique. I don't think sensors and sensor programs could handle the large number of "what ifs" that can happen while driving.

How many times does the systems collapse. So eventually people with high prestige will be at high risk by sitting back in the car and let the car b driven by it self. It is not like planes where traffic is 2 low and computers handle the flight even lands as per programmed but will it pull up some emergency landing and emergency stopping.?

Of course I was think of a car that actually can drive itself...

And I was just riffing on all the goofy stuff that this might lead to and settled on those two to post.

But since you asked... I'll do another...

At what age does junior get his own car? I mean... he won't need to drive so the whole age/licence thing won't be a problem.

@Ralphy – does this mean we don't have a manual way of overriding the drive? I'm sure they need to come up with something in case of emergency.

@Trenth – That's the reason why we don't still see it on roads.  Car manufacturers will not want to take the risk of safety.

@dstroz – Does this mean you still want to live more. Lol

Same here I will just give it a try for the sake of curiosity, but will never want to use it continuously for any long drives.

Design News readers spoke loudly and clearly after our recent news story about a resurgence in manufacturing -- and manufacturing jobs. Commenters doubted the manufacturers, describing them as H-1B visa promoters, corporate crybabies, and clowns. They argued that US manufacturers aren’t willing to train workers, preferring instead to import cheap labor from abroad.
