And you could have driverless prams, put your sprog in and the pram would walk itself......

And what about 'Smart' dog leads......?

The possibilities are endless.......

In fact.......there would be no need for humans at all.....
We would all have to go to the pub.

Re: Driverless Cars

Great points about the advantages of driverless cars.

My parents practically have one now. It slams on the brakes when necessary, parallel parks, warns when you are going out of your lane, holds a distance behind the car in front of you, and warns of cars that are in your blind spot if you start to signal that you are changing lanes. My problem so far has been trusting the thing to do what it's programmed to do.

I trust a driverless car far more than many of people I see currently on the road, or coming out of a pub - like Longdogs

Re: Driverless Cars

On a slightly different tack...

In a paper mill I used to have AGVs, automatically guided vehicles. These were large trucks that carried the finished 16 tonne reels of paper for the paper machine to the converting machine. Driverless - they were programmed to follow a track laid in the mill floor. There were sensors to the proximity of a pedestrian or an object in their path to avoid collisions.

Worked just fine. And that was decades ago.

Re: Driverless Cars

There are no drivers in these trucks each carrying 60 tonnes of ore hour after hour, day after day.
