I'll never buy into the driverless car thing. #1 when the system reaches a tipping point, it will be a target for malware or just low tech systems/sensor spoofing by troublemakers. #2 an automated car will never be able to do all the things I do with a car/truck (off road driving, work needs that don't exactly fit into a programmers view of what a car should be doing) #3 I refuse to be second guessed by automation.. i.e. I do things that aren't exactly road legal and will continue to do so, such as occasionally crossing over medians or speeding to get somewhere I need to be, its my choice to do and I'm fully willing to pay an occasional ticket when I get caught doing it. Its the price of doing "business". I also choose my own level of risk tolerance. I refuse to mandated to me. i.e. I can choose to ride a motorcycle, but yet the damn nanny state gub'ment doesn't think I'm adult enough to make a decision to wear a seatbelt or not in an enclosed vehicle.
I would love to have an autonomous capable vehicle, but the only way I'll ever own one is if it can be COMPLETELY blinded/turned off (hard sensor disconnect, no "soft off" can be accepted) when I want it to be off.
