Will we see a real self driving car in our life time?

That's very interesting for sure. Wonder if Elon Musk has seen that yet.

But now what we really need is a self driving tow truck, self driving and operating rescue vehicle equipped with self working Jaws of Life, self driving ambulance, self driving stretcher, self driving and operating surgeons, and above all self driving hearse. Self driving grave diggers would be a good idea too ... lots of them :)

On the bright side, there seems to be a lot of big money driving this industry now so maybe we will see some positive outcomes eventually. It's a shame though even elevators, which are much less complex, still are not completely safe.

Just when you thought you were safe, all depends on who is over riding the programming. Intended Design and Implementation vs Hack attack on open end hardware vulnerabilities, only known to builder.

Looking ahead, maybe this is just another step toward robot domination. The self driving cars are after all a form of robot. Maybe eventually we all evolve into cars with our personalities programmed into the computer :)
