I'm not quite sure the cars will be fully driver-less. Computers have bugs and glitches, and having one of those occur at highway speeds sounds kind of scary. The driver would need to still somewhat pay attention to what is going on in case this happens. That is, unless the fail safe is breaking and pulling over to the shoulder.

Something tells me badges would turn into...

"Scrum Worker" - Finish the most amount of work-hours in one sprint
"Scrum Worker II" - Finish the most amount of work-hours in two sprints
"Build Breaker" - Break the current build
"Build Fixer" - Fix the build after someone broke it
"You saw nothing!" - Fix the build after you broke it without anybody else knowing.

At the source of every error which is blamed on the computer you will find at least two human errors, including the error of blaming it on the computer.
