I'll give up my impreza when they peel my cold dead fingers from around the wheel, I suppose control of modern cars is far enough away from the driver anyway you may as well not be driving. Maybe your not a petrol head so I'll explain why a little part of me dies when I see things like this, imagine zen and kaby lake only come soldered to crappy boards with soldered ram, gpu etc, a poor glued on cooler, glued so removal means broken, inside a plastic box full of sealer (again open means broken) and you have modern cars. Now imagine google editions of our hypothetical next gen pc which dont run any games at all simply lets you watch videos of games and you have this google car.

Even when (not if) automated cars become mandatory, there will still be closed tracks you can drive yourself on. Cars are just too dangerous for manual driving to stay legal on public streets. Who knows how long the transition will take though, you could be dead before your impreza is outlawed.

I'll disagree respectfully, tests are to easy and most standard driving tests dont require any real skill or really prepare you for the road, poor roads also must carry lots of blame otherwise there would be no 'black spots', I'm not saying I'm perfect or good even but why couldnt I mess up a few times off the road instead before I was allowed on it? This and even things like self parking just feels like dumbing down for the masses.

Once a certain critical mass of users hits then I expect it will become illegal to self drive on taxpayer funded roads. The 99% of the people who are in autonomous cars won't be willing to have their lives put in danger by the 1% who want to drive themselves. The efficiencies that will come with autonomous vehicles will need 100% adoption as well to really come into their own. Things like autonomous cars driving at 200kph down a highway won't be possible if there are manual drivers mixed into the traffic. We won't be able to do away with traffic lights and have road lanes that automatically change direction with changing traffic patterns if there are still manual drivers on the road.

I expect insurance costs will be the main driving force for adoption, but that it will remain legal to manually drive for a good long while until adoption reaches some critical mass, at which point it will become illegal to self drive on taxpayer funded roads.

At that point people will be able to go to a track to self drive. Similarly to how people now have to ride their horses off the roadways.

I agree with this, and have always accepted that this is the future. It makes me happy as a person who drives long distances at times. It, however, makes me extremely sad as a person that owns a collectors car that is getting more and more valuable, and harder to get.

It is sort of an "enjoy it while I can" situation, before it becomes a "model".

I really hope I can still actually drive my car when these become mainstream. I actually like driving, and I like having a car with no electronics besides a 1970s radio.

But wait...... That's now a thing of the past!

Why worry about picking up spyware when for convenience's sake it can come directly to you!

If spyware is one of main arguments against expanding an "internet of things" by putting software into more physical objects, that problem concerns the behavior of the entities that distribute and regulate the software, and not a problem with the behavior of the things themselves.

Already understood, you can't blame the objects no more than you can blame a hammer for hitting your finger when you miss the nail you're driving... But yeah, you still do it.

However....
The intent by the creators and developers of these things is the real issue, the object merely does what it was created to do when used for that purpose by those that use it. The intent is what I have to question as in what is it's "True" intent with the equipment and capabilities it has....
Makes me go "Hmmm..... blushsmiley.gif
