Self Driving Cars

How many of you are looking forward to having one? Sleeping, to and from the trailhead, can hardly wait. Or do you freak out at the thought of a self driving vehicle, self driving down to Roads End or the southern entrance to SEKI?

If it can drop me off on the west side and drive itself to the east side, then I'm in.
What?!

That would be cool Jim, you could start at any trailhead in the Sierra, exit whichever one you wanted, your car would be at the trailhead, though I wonder whether a self parking feature is something that is part of this whole deal.

According to BMW's next self-parking car won't need any human help it will be a five year wait for a "Remote Valet Parking Assistant" that employs high-resolution laser scanners built into the car’s body to capture data on its surroundings and park the vehicle on command from a smartphone app.
