    Great discussion on the self driving cars. I understand that we need to walk before we can run but the period between now and a level 5 autonomous vehicle is going to be critical and the most difficult. Having a car that can do most of the driving but needs you to pay attention and take over at times is a recipe for disaster. Too many mistakes can destroy the desire for this technology.
    Example;
    The first digital home video format introduced in 1978, was Laserdiscs. This was only two years after the introduction of VHS, and had superior video and audio quality. Laserdiscs had extremely sharp images – as well as digital surround sound.

    Unfortunately, the discs were heavy and easily damaged, and the disc players quite loud compared to VCRs. There was no recording capability, and the discs and their players were super expensive. VCRs reigned supreme until the advent of the DVD years later.
    Autonomy if not rolled out properly could see this same type of failure and put the release of actual level 5 cars many years away. IMO
