Autonomous Cars Are A Ways Off: That's Just Fine
This past year seems to have been a moment when the automotive industry may first have seen through the hype of Autonomous Vehicles being right around the corner. Even if Elon Musk still says they are. But that's fine--there's no need to be in a rush, and while the tech cooks we can take this time to figure out how we want this revolution to be, and how we can secure a place for human driving still. There's a small chance we can get this right, so may as well try.
