8. Does this mean Skynet is only months away?
Is your car going to be connected to the world in a way your parents could have never imagined? Yes. Are decisions that seal your fate going to be based on that network of information? Well, yes, in the sense that your car will rely on information from many different sources to decide where to go and what to do in an emergency. Is it going to become self-aware and decide to nuke the planet? Who really knows, but I'd wager no.
9. Can I fall asleep in one? Eventually, sure. But there’s a line to be drawn between a fully autonomous vehicle and one that's semi-autonomous. The first cars will be semi-autonomous, which means they'll not only have manual overrides, but you'll be required to be alert and with at least one hand on the wheel at all times.
Aaron Miller is the Rides editor for Supercompressor, and can be found on Twitter. He welcomes autonomous vehicles since he doesn't trust most drivers, but will likely never own one himself.
