The Google self driving car really show how far technology has come. And I feel it will be a matter of time before we see cars shipping with auto drive. The positives: Can take over driving when the driver is not alert whether it be from working all night or partying all night. The vehicle can take over get the driver home safely while not endangering others on the road. Can take over when the driver is distracted. We all seen it where some one is texting, on the phone, even seen a person with a full laptop on the steering wheel typing , I would argue those people either need to invest in a bluetooth device or pull over but the reality is people are not doing that, so the car can just take over and pay attention when the driver isn't. Negatives: Software crashes or have a glitch. Unfortunately the one time you hit auto drive and it malfunctions while you are a sleep then you could end up staying sleep. It is not a matter of if but when the software will crash and depending on how the car handles the software crash could determine if you end up in a crash. 2) Hackers and viruses: Another big concern is how the device will handle malware. I am sure Google will do its best to make sure the software is secure. But the more people get their hands on the software the more there is potential for someone to crack software.
