    Being tested in the city where I live.  See several vans with the bubble tops every day along with their passive drivers.

    Not close here. But I look forward to them. It should be much safer for everyone else around them, even if they might not be so safe for the passengers. It would be hard to design a robot that could be more distracted and clueless than a human driver.

    They are available yes. I wont buy one neither will anyone i know. We Love driving/riding. If it becomes tiresome, just pull over at a rest stop. My ins co asked about radar avoidance etc on my "new" 2015. Doesnt have it, even.

    I see  cars  from the '60's driven every day. Jeeps, Corvairs, etc. A friend drives his

    '57  Chevy "Apache" " as much as he can.

    i highly doubt there will ever be 100% driverless cars. it will probably always be "self driving" but the driver has to constantly pay attention to the road and take over steering when needed, which kind of defeats the purpose. there's just too many situations which machines haven't dealt with, and by the time they deal with them once, it might be too late, someone could get killed.

    sure, if all roads were just massive straight highways, they could surely create safe AI to navigate those. but it's all the side roads, back roads, unlit streets, pedestrians crossing, animals crossing, construction sites that change roads, tree branches in the road, foreign items in the road, hard-to-see stop signs, and many other situations where the AI just wouldn't be able to correctly deal with the situation

    We already have them in Utah.  Wait.  Maybe I should explain.  YES, there's usually someone in the driver's seat.  But....  that doesn't mean they know how to drive!  Have you ever been to Utah?  Have you SEEN the way people drive (if you even want to call it driving) here?
