Re: Technological Stagnation

The problem with driverless cars is not so much a technological issue rather a human issue. Are we really ready to hand over control to a computer? It's similair to airplanes. In Theory a plane could take-off, fly to it's destinationa nd land by itself. The technology exists but would we want to fly on plane without a pilot?

Sure driverless cars all controlled by computers would drastically increase capciaty, reduce congestion etc....

As for a car accident, there is no such a no-fault accident, you might not be at fault yourself. i.e. stopped at a red light waiting for it to change and be rear ended, but the other driver(s) is at fault.
