Making AI drive in perfect roads is not that difficult but making it safe to be deployed on all kinds of roads is. Hell some countries don't even have paved roads but dirt roads and so on. Not everyone lives in road perfect California cities.
Well, considering what they are capable of now, and we seem to only be at the infancy of this machine learning/ deep learning push from a hardware perspective... I think that these hurdles can be overcome relatively soon from a decision making standpoint. However; I don't know enough about how the sensors work, and dirtying them, or driving through snow, rain, dirt etc. does seem like it would mess something up.
