@Baud I'm genuinely unsure whether to upvote or downvote you for this.

You deserve an upvote for making a sensible point about driver (pilot?) safety.

However you deserve a downvote for thinking it should be unmanned. Surely the point of the whole thing is putting your arse on the line to do this. Without that, it's much the same as just firing cannonballs downrange.
