Nevada has licensed Google to test its prototype driverless car on public roads. Assuming the technology eventually becomes commercially viable, how would a car that drives itself change the way we drive - and what might stay the same?

After tests on the famous Las Vegas Strip, driverless cars will soon be a reality on the roads of Nevada.

The state has approved the US's first self-driven vehicle licence, meaning that a Toyota Prius modified by search firm Google will be the first to hit the highway.

So what would a world of driverless cars look like?

will it stop if suddenly someone cross the street? will it stop if there is car accident ahead? will it recognize a blocked road that is under repair/construction? will it stop if someone was hit ahead and the vehicle is approaching on that way? will it stop if is approaching a hole/sink hole:)), a flood or dead end in Grand Canyon? :))
