texting and driving and robotic cars

Post by Invisible Man on Sun Sep 01, 2013 3:37 pm

So, what kind of message is it that says that today we cannot text while driving BUT in the Future, cars will be autonomous just so we can be more distracted than ever? I think really that if we get cars that drive themselves we will start to become controlled even more when we cannot speed anymore. Are we really going to give up our freedom to drive in the future?
I don't really believe autonomous cars will be totally safe. It's amazing- slowly car manufacturing companies ARE building forward surveillance censors that take control if a deer jumps into the way.
-And what about how lazy people will become? Will the capability of actually driving be phased out?

Oh the irony of a kids getting driven to school autonomously while they play video games in the back seat.

Having been in the automotive industry for many years it's my opinion that it will be the insurance companies that will push the for the advancement of such technology.
They stand to gain the most if these systems kill and maim fewer people than a human driver.

Bars would LOVE this technology too.  Folks could just call for a Johnny Cab!
