@Adeniji: Yes, it has little far to go and will take more time. But it is very good effort.

@Hailey, you are right on that but such weather condition are peculiar to some part of the world. Do we say such places should not bother venturing into such car.

Yes, larger parts of driverless car functionality hings on public telecommunications infrastructure. Still, i believe improvement on driverless technologies would make cars work in snow unless, in an extreme weather incident/natural disasters.

@Adeniji said: "some of the features that would make up the driverless are begining to be seen in some cars."


To your point, a number of years ago, high end cars started boasting about this automatic parallel parking feature. This would have been an early start on the self driving. I remember thinking it would be hard to trust the car. Someday, though, we'll think nothing of it.

@_HM, i have to think that at least in early days that something is better than nothing. I've seen the google car in my neighborhood and it seemed to go along with other cars without a hitch.
