A driverless car that a couple of strong men could tip over doesn't count either. :P

Uber seems to be having some problems in San Fransisco:

Uber says it’s reviewing incident of self-driving car running a red light

Two incidents in fact, of "self-driving" running red lights.
Or maybe not:
Update, December 14th, 6:52PM ET: Uber appears to have completed its review, and concluded that it was the human drivers, not the computers, that were at fault.

“These incidents were due to human error,” a spokesperson said. “This is why we believe so much in making the roads safer by building self-driving Ubers. These vehicles were not part of the pilot and were not carrying customers. The drivers involved have been suspended while we continue to investigate.”

Tesla's Self Driving Car Senses Accident Ahead, Brakes Before Collision

A video recently posted on Twitter features a self driving Tesla, which upon sensing an accident up ahead, brakes on its own.

The video has since gone viral, as it is contrary to the arguments against automated cars.
Here it is from YT:

It occures to me that with fully driverless cars, we're about to see a big uptick in truck-hauled advertisements.

May they all go to hell with the drivers that are not driving them.

Norway to build first self-sailing electric cargo ship
The Local (Norway)
Norway plans to launch the first autonomous and fully electric cargo ship next year that the project's backers say will save 40,000 truck journeys annually.

Fertiliser company Yara International has teamed up with industrial group Kongsberg to build the Yara Birkeland, which will haul fertilisers between three ports in southern Norway.

With a range of more than 65 nautical miles, the ship will be able to haul roughly 100 containers at a speed of 12 to 15 knots, according to the project's director, Bjørn Tore Orvik.

Initially the ship will be manned, but remote operation is expected to begin in 2019 and fully autonomous operation in 2020, the companies said.

↑ Interesting. As long as these unmanned ships stay in safe waters:

And that truck journey, if measured in freedom units would be what exactly?

I just thought of something.

Once this technology is mature enough to be adopted, will Google program "social justice" into the car's computer? :BigGrin3:

How would it manifest?
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"
