Autocar Skeptic

I'm generally a technology skeptics, not in the "get off my lawn" sense as I'm happy to be wrong, but in the "not sure this is really going to work" sense. Happy for us to all download ourselves into our robot bodies in the future, just don't think it's very likely.

And I'm really not too positive about the potential for self-driving cars. I'm sure building a system from the ground up (infrastructure, vehicles) would be basically doable right now, but the real promise is that it can be grafted onto our existing road infrastructure and operate with the current fleet of mostly not self-driving cars.
