Your main source of communication is indeed a robot – your cell phone (in which, not only is this your collective transmission but it also holds many of your secrets; photos, love letters to your confidential significant other, even your bank statements). Still not enough persuasion for you? Let’s dig a little bit deeper. You trust a smart camera to watch your newborn baby as it sleeps. You trust a mechanical arm to divide out your medicine for your upcoming prescription refill. You trust that “Alexa” isn’t listening in on your financial situations and political preferences during election time. If that’s not enough … even your sweeper is a robot. So why not have a robot car? For most people self-driving cars are not feared but rather, something to look forward to, as this new innovation again improves (or at least changes) our lives once again. Some people do indeed fear this new technology as most of us really don’t like change.
Regardless, the day of the self-driving car is just about to turn the corner and appear before our very eyes, so we might as well embrace this new way of living. Just sit back, relax and leave the driving to us (so to speak).
