Yes indeed. I will be interested to see how mainstream they become.

Will those with the means have an autonomous car for the daily, mind numbing commute and a "traditional" automobile for weekend/pleasure driving?

Will there be legal ramifications/new regulations to address operating system "software glitches?" Accident? The car did it. Check the log. I wonder how insurance companies will adjust? Prob. favorably if the accident rates go down as expected.

System security? How easy to hack? You know someone will try.
