I'd rather drive than continuously look over my shoulder to see if the autopilot is driving properly.
At some point, people are even gonna sleep during a ride, with not a care in the world, other than perhaps the fear of the fact, now an anomaly, that some people are still stubbornly manually driving cars around them and that those people are most likely either very old and dangerous or young and still crazy.
Or is manual driving will simply be banned eventually? Or have a special permit for special circumstances only that is very hard to get?
It's gonna be interesting however it goes.
Yea I doubt self-driving cars are going to be mainstream in my lifetime. Can a Tesla even detect and avoid potholes? I searched, but couldn't get a clear answer on that.
I'd like to see a self-driving car drive across the entire continental United States and back, through rural areas, heavy traffic, road construction, snow/icy conditions, across mountains, etc. all along a route that is NOT pre-planned out. Just give the car a destination and let it go. If it comes back in one piece, then
I'll be impressed.
