Hands-Off Training: Google’s Self-Driving Car Holds Tantalizing Promise, but Major Roadblocks Remain: Scientific American

Hands-Off Training: Google’s Self-Driving Car Holds Tantalizing Promise, but Major Roadblocks Remain: Scientific American.

This technology would be amazing. Could definitely see some everyday practical uses from safety to convenience.

However, would it eventually reduce the “pleasure” of driving?

Most of the people I know would like to have the convenience of such “robot chauffeur” systems but will still prefer to drive themselves most of the time.

It all comes down to convenience and the ability to have systems like then when you need them. Like a start/stop ignition button, would be nice to have an ‘auto-pilot engage’ button!
