What will laws on self-driving cars look like? Think black boxes and 'minimum attention'

The ultimate requirement for 'Autonomous' cars will be Central Control, so they won't really be autonomous in the true sense just less realtime input from the driver/passenger during the journey.

Certainly in cities it would make far more sense to log a journey in advance with a central control and then sit in your car while it communicates with the city traffic mainframe to get you where you are going.

At minimum even if cars are going to remain private and personal they will become more and more dependant on the Internet of Traffic in order to carry out a journey as autonomy becomes the norm, think at the moment some 7.000.000 car journeys a day in London, with a connected car it makes better sense to manage traffic centrally.

Just not with me in it!
