actually.. there are some good things and some bad things.. the bad things are going to come from the side out of the range of the multiple camera views...

it will get better when they start monitoring blue tooth signals from cars for tracking other cars positions...  sort of an aircraft transponder effect.. showing direction speed, altitude..  altitude because it might be a car that is on a bridge or crossover..  if they could use something like the current navigation system to low power broadcast to other cars ... this would also work for emergency vehicles..  car chases in the area would could be transmitted to signals to get the intersections cleared..  

it would be really great for the nav systems in police cruisers to communicate with each other their position and speed.. with some kind of additional signal to notify which car is in the lead at the moment.. that could allow other officers to parallel the chase..  if the driver keeps going around in circles.. the residual tracks could be viewed by command staff to set up traps for them..  police command officers would love to know where each police car is every second.  so a car closer to a call could be dispatched..  while cars farther out set up paramiters.  wow.. i need to clean my glasses.

i wonder back to the original thread.. how do the self driving cars handle white out conditions during winter driving..  can they pick out the traffic lanes in several inches of snow.. how do they handle tule fog. where you cannot see infront and behind you.. .do they have any kind of radar to pickup speeds of cars in front and behind them..

Darpa needed self driving trucks for the middle east conflicts.. too many road side bombs and RPGS coming in.. taking out supplies shipped from around the world..

the aviation industry came up with a plane to plane system called ADS-B..  so your plane displays where any other planes are close to you .. so moving a similar system into cars.. would be fairly easy.. much faster to do it in japan where cars get replaced every 4 or 5 years..

Security is a big issue that occupies the minds of people. With autonomous cars, would there be a higher risk of crashing? Will these cars always have complete control over the fast-paced and often precarious situation?
It seems, in adverse weather or difficult terrains, they could have some problems.

I completely agree with u, just want to add a few more ideas from me:

the first thing is the safety: People, on the whole, are not the best drivers out there. Sadly and all too obviously, we are no where near with the computer level. Getting from home to office should be rendered accident free if you use the driveless system.

The other potential plus is efficiently. Driveless car can improve the communication with other cars as well, therefore share smart roadways.
This will allow all sorts of efficiencies to be realized. One driverless car will know that the other driverless cars in front of them will not suddenly slow down, so the gaps between can be shortened.
In short, i think driveless car will bring more benefits for human than disadvantages Crazy

I think that with the driveless cars we will reanalyze marketing approach, it's important question for future well-being.
