We already had driverless cars in Jurassic Park.

Anyone who makes his or her living by driving buses, these things will take your jobs, beware!

Full automation for a penniless but 'free' population draws ever closer.

Signed, a dinosaur.

On the other hand it is kind of cute, so maybe run it as a novelty here and there?

They have handles on the roof like subways and trains. I hope they don't expect people to stand in it.

Anyone who makes his or her living by driving buses, these things will take your jobs, beware! ID take a driver-less vehicle over a geriatric taxi drive anyday, never gets tired , speeds, runs stop signs or traffic lights. there will come a day in the near future when people will avoid human driven transport for the added risks associated with a human driver.

Nice job by the designers in hiding all of the sensors. Anyone who thinks that Corporations will not adopt robots as soon as they are available to keep for themselves the wages of employees is quite naive. NO vacation time, no unions, no worker liability, not even bathrooms will take money better put into the pockets of the Corporate psychopaths. The one bright spot here is that all of the newly 'idle minds' may begin to turn their thoughts toward who really is getting all of the benefits and who isn't, nor will they have to worry about getting 'fired' for being disobedient. Automation could signal a whole new version of 'freedom'. Freedom from pathological domination by cliques of conscienceless monsters. Wouldn't it be wonderful if all of our ruling cliques committed 'suicide by AI'. Ah, Great G-d of Irony, send down your blessings upon us all...
