A lot has been said about autonomous cars, both the good and the bad. As a thought experiment, I decided to indulge in what is clearly science fiction. I’m trying for more “science” than “fiction” in that it is a speculation about what the world looks based on what where we think autonomous cars are going. I won’t speculate as to the timeframe, although I think we are still at least 2-3 decades away from this future. Replacing or obsoleting nearly 300 million cars and several million jobs isn’t a small undertaking.
