http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2014/05/28/googles-new-driverless-car-has-no-brakes-or-steering-wheel/

Google's driverless car has a combination of laser and radar sensors to do all the work, rendering a brake pedal, steering wheel and accelerator pedal unnecessary.

So why does it still have seat belts and air bag? Wink

Looks cool however if i don't want to drive, i take a bus or train. i want to be in control. wonder how long they think it will be until we start to see some of them on the road.

I was reading a tech blog the other day stated that if this comes reality "driverless cars" it would cost city and state governments billions of dollars per year in lost revenue because they wouldn't be able to to give out speeding and traffic tickets since these cars wouldn't speed and would obey all traffic laws.

i imagine it could save lives thou by reducing the drunks and speeding.

so it's a catch 22 scenario.

People are going to be really dumb in a few hundred years, they won't learn how to do anything.

I disagree. Technological progress is exponential. As we become more technological it will be natural to move toward a meritocracy in which intelligence and creativity will be rewarded. A highly technological society can be just as much a victim of entropy as any other system so more and more effort is needed just to maintain it.

The only way in which people of the future will be "dumber" than someone like you in the early 21st century is that there will be so much information that it will be impossible to truly have general knowledge of any one broad technical subject.

No, it's a fallacy because the assumption that billions will be lost infers that the way taxes are assessed never changes.

I know, in some countries it is still THE way of transport, horse and carriage ... but in our industrialized countries, we are laughing about this kind of transport, which we used more than 100 years ago, ..... but more than 100 years ago, people claiming that we would travel in future... in things like trains and aircraft, were sued... they were considered witches .... maybe if we are 50 years further,people are laughing at the fact that we were traveling in airplanes, then they will say, "that was SO old-fashioned" Surprised

It sounds like a good idea but I think there will be a lot of wrecks since you can't manually stop the car.

I keep thinking this could never work in traffic with usual cars around,
not sure if a robotic car can react on incidents or, more importantly anticipate other driver's stupidity.

According to the news the UK will start allowing them on the road starting in January. I guess we won't have to wait too long to see what happens.

In the UK next year but I only live a couple of miles from the proving ground where they're being tested out right now, and contrary to what everyone is being told, they are taking them out onto the public roads and they are somewhat unnerving when you see one coming towards you. Don't know if I trust them enough myself. When all's said and done they're only a computer and I think we all know how often computers go wrong. ( I would use the word 'crash', but in the case of a computerized car, that doesn't somehow seem appropriate).

This reminds me of the 'Johnny Cab' car chase with Schwarzenegger in 'Total Recall'. Remember how that one ended up...? Confused
