"How will you steer it if you live out in the country and want to drive it into your backyard to unload some stuff? Using a smartphone app? Yeah, I'm sure no one will hack that...

Not to mention roads which are not on maps, roads which ARE on maps but not actually there, road improvements where a junction/exit is closed, but there's a temporary one. eg, for those that know the area, Scotch Corner to Dishforth being upgraded 6 lane motorway on a live, running road, new junctions, changed junctions, closed junction and best of all, I'd love to see what an AI driven car can make of the northbound exit being closed at Scotch Corner, the temporary exit being half a mile before the currently closed one. Yes, a truly "smart" car will report the changes back to base, but someone has to be first.
