Wow. I thought I've seen worse with a woman next to me putting on makeup (with the visor DOWN) on the interstate.

But I think you know where my money would go! :)

@pocharle, OK, try this scenario: Would you worry more about the driverless vehicle in the next lane or the 70-year-old grandmother/father texting while driving next to you (which my brother witnessed yesterday)...? 

I know where I'd put my faith!

I know I'm lazy sometimes, but I get nervous about the other drivers on the road. I can't imagine the panic I'd face knowing I'm not actually 'driving' the car and it's me that's being taken for a ride.

Who knows, maybe I'm just being overdramatic?

The electronics are going to be major part of any automotive in future. With electric vehicles becoming more and more famous, the car will become an electronic product in future.

I believe mass market driverless cars are the way of the future but I shudder to think what the equivalent of the big blue screen will be in this multi dimensional car-human system?  I guess the fail safe will be the mother of all traffic jams.  Can you imagine the LA freeway in rush hour when the system malfunctions and just like every system ever invented.....it will fail at some point.

I think the best part about these driver-less cars is their ability to communicate with each other and be able to coordinate about the traffic situation and other variables. This is something that's extremely hard to achieve with manual drivers.

Yes, I'll think the driverless systems will be far safer and smoother than human-driven cars. Ideally, when all cars are networked, it will be an amazing system, but even well before that it'll be efficient and safe.

The automotive elctronics definitely holds a great promise for the elctronic supply chain no doubt

Just on a funnier side , I am imagining a picture where on the ever crowded roads in almost every city in the world , how will these driverless cars fare?  Will their computers be able to manuver their vehicles through the maze of the vehicles in front of them by cutting lanes na dsuch other tricks that the seasoned drivers do with ease?
