Something he didn't touch upon is crime.
Since criminals rely on cars for gettaways, and to get to and from the scene of their crime etc., I would think that cars that are totally computerized would leave an easily traceable trail.
In effect, all but eliminating crimes that involve vehicles, including car theft.
We'd also be able to erect invisible electronic barriers to protect buildings, like say the Capitol.
I don't think that there is any question that computerized robot cars are the future, but, I'll still miss driving myself.
Personally, I think it's further in the future than the guy in the video predicts.
Not because we won't have the technology, but because of the resistance to the technology.
I think the change will have to be incremental by generation.
In my opinion, I don't think we'll have a totally robotic transportation system in place until at least 2050 or later.
By then it'll be a necessity.
Ha! The fossil fuel industry won't be able to meddle in politics, we'll have new industries meddling in governments.
If we don't do something about the meddling now, we won't have any say so by 2050.
