Re: Autonomous Autos
@maryam Now that's a scary thought! Regular cars do come with more premium features than before.

Sharing?
I don't thinkg "Sharing" is a good term for these companies.. More like "hair-splitters". How does one qualify sharing something, when it is charged for? Sharing suggests an even dividing of X. And so far, Uber and Lyft have yet to share anything with me... Whereas they are skirting regulations with this loose term... I bet that is where Trump got the "Alternate Truth"crap... .Uber...

Re: Autonomous Autos
Just remember all those premium features power liftgates, backup cameras, etc. that were only on premium cars and are now part of most cars. Eventually, autonomous cars will be a feature on every car just like a car remote.

Re: Autonomous Autos
@dcawrey agreed, for now it is beyond the reach of most of our budgets. But, as with other advanced technology, I'm sure costs will come down in the next several years. It is possible that in the next decade they will be not quite as pricey, though I doubt they will ever not come at at some premium cost.

Re: Autonomous Autos
While Tesla is certainly a premium brand we are seeing many entry level cars being developed with autonomous driving capabilities, many are slated for as early as 2020 once legislation catches up with autonomous driving the possibilities are tremendous. I think it will open the world to so many!

Re: Autonomous Autos
Well we're seeing right not that "assisted driving" options in cars are pricey upgrades. They come in Teslas but as of right now that company doesn't exactly have affordable vehicles. I think we're years away from autonomous being affordable.

Autonomous Autos
What will be the starting price point for autonomous cars, will the autos require a diferent type of maintenance, gasoline, etc.?

How will this impact fleet vehicle drivers? Will they be retired?

Will there be monitoring systems in autonomous fleet vehicles that can override an action if a sensor malfunctions while the fleet vehicle is on the road?

Automotive Evolution Future
Autonomous autos will provide many benefits for users including elderly, disabled or partially disabled drivers as well as parents with small children who may need attention or assistance while a parent is driving.

However, the downsize is that cab drivers, government social service driving services and other private driving services that are used by the elderly or low-income individuals may be driven out of business.

Re: Automotive evolution
@Ariella, I agree transport is not a one-size-fits-all and Grab has capitalized on this concept.

I have used Lyft and Uber and prefer Lyft.

Autonomous Industry for Autos
Great article. Autonomous autos are great but only as great as the person who coded the auto.

What happens when a sensor fails while driving such as alerting a driver that is transferring lanes that a car is too close or that a car has slammed on brakes. How will autonomous vehicles handle situations when sensors fail to prevent accidents and disasters?
