In fact, Google's fully autonomous car doesn't even have a steering wheel and it's been proven to be safer than a car that has one.
There have been automatic pilots in planes for decades. They can already take off, land and navigate without pilot intervention, so it doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize these systems would be perfect as an autonomous self-defen... [More]
