That's nothing! My cousin's got one with no steering wheel, pedals, fenders, tires, or transmission.

Of course. How else is he going to show off to the neighbors what a cool car he's going to be driving someday?

But that will not happen in anybody's lifetime

Wrong! It's going to happen quickly, and you'll probably be alive to see it unless you plan to die within the next decade.

How do they work when you can't see the road like in snow?

Excellent question. I got shit on here a while back for asking about snow, rural areas, etc. This seems more like an urban novelty.

No, they actually can't. Google makes the best there is and they only take theirs out on sunny days because the LIDAR and the cameras are useless in heavy rain or snow:

The fact is, where they're at is at 80% or so on this and it will be a looong time before they're even close to 100% as that last 10% will be a bitch.
Notice that GM is testing the vehicles in sunny California?

Maybe. I'd have to see it in action before I believe it. Have they done any tests that you know of?

It's obvious that the roads are going to have to be modified to accomodate driverless cars. Invisible markers will be planted at all critical junctures, and traffic as well as pedestrian flow will be redesigned so that these cars can work smoothly. It will take a couple of decades for all these changes to be fully implimented, so except driverless cars to have a bumpy ride for a few years.

Fuck GM for all their diversity hiring and still pissed at them for shutting down all the train stations many decades ago to force people to buy cars..

The worst thing was the shutting down of the electric trolly system, which used to run in every major city.

I don't get why they would remove the steering wheel or pedals... for short distances, I enjoy driving...the feel of the car. :( hopefully in the future, they don't get rid of everything, otherwise, will be so boring to travel.
