The shape of things to come.

Very frightening.

It certainly is but I think it will be a good number of years before all the "normal" cars disappear from our roads...I would think at least 20-25 years at the earliest.

I was once asked to demonstrate how my work provided phone was 'playing up' to one of the tech people, it performed beautifully my refusing to obey any command given to it (much to my surprise I may add, usually these things work fine when the tech folk are about). It was immediately agreed the phone needed to be replaced so, a few days without a phone and then back to normal.

Now we all know our pc's and tablets have their little moments which frustrate the b'jesus out of us, televisions just the same. In fact all tech has it's moments where a switch off and turn back on fix is required.

So we can conclude all tech is inherently jittery.

Self drive cars which seem to be the Holy Grail of today will be no different. So, what happens when the car is doing 70mph and decides to stop playing? What happens when it loses it's bearings and hits something else or a pedestrian? Who goes to court, the self drive 'passenger' or the car manufacturer. Will the 'driver' be allowed to go to sleep on long journeys or be over the legal limit to otherwise drive? And if not in a car, what of passengers on a self drive bus, who becomes the designated 'person of responsibility' the last passenger to board or the first?

The whole thing has got disaster stamped all over it.
