One in Five Want Self-Drive cars
A J.D. Power and Associates survey indicates that 20% of those surveyed "definitely would" or "probably would" want this feature in their next car. I for one would like a flying car, but that's just me. The systems that are available now - or will be shortly - are being pitched as "driver assistance" systems; backup collision alarms, cruise control with automated distance detection (so you don't run into the car in front), and mechanisms that keep sleepy drivers from dozing off. But it seems that quite soon we may be looking at a more literal "self driving" car. It's going to be very interesting to see how the lawyers handle that one.
