Drivers Could Lose Their Jobs in Qatar
By timebandit • 4 years 3 weeks ago.

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?

But can it be programmed to pull up outside malls and block traffic until it's owners decide to appear and embark?

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? :))
