Where Will All The Drivers Go?

The autobot is here.  Science fiction movie self driving cars (think Herbie and the Transformers) in the form of so-called driverless cars are already traveling the highways of America, on their own.   The Google car is one example – not so much driverless car as  it is a self-driven car or an automobile robot with a passenger, just in case – autobot anyone?   The New York Times published an article describing a problem that we, the human drivers, caused by our less than perfect attention to safety rules.  “Dmitri Dolgov, head of software for Google’s

Less Mech; More Tech
