This kinda cracks me up…

I had always imagined self-driving cars going through an intersection looking something like a marching band drill. One line of cars passing seamlessly through another.

You hope. The alternate wouldn’t be fun…

Maybe autodriving autos aren’t such a hot idea after all.

Typical non-competes are only 1 year, even in Massachusetts. You may want to correct the initial post…

If that’s what the world of self-driving cars is going to be like then I’ve decided I don’t want mine to have any windows. I’d just be trying to instinctively curl into the fetal position with my eyes shut tight the whole time anyway.

I wonder why the system needs a human to take parcels off the conveyor and drop them on to the robots?

@Papasan There doesn’t appear to be any allowance for pedestrians in that scheme.

With self-driving cars on the way, can Judge Dredd style mo-pads (mobile homes on autopilot, following and endless nomadic route around the city) be far off?
