In May, 2012, Nevada became the first state to grant a license to a self-driven car.
The Google Computer Driven Car has driven over 175,000 miles, albeit
with a human driver behind the wheel in case something goes wrong.
There are numerous cars that have the ability to park, to alert the
driver in the event that the car leaves its lane, and cars that alert
the driver to objects in its path and take appropriate corrective action. Consider a society in which computers control automobiles, eliminating human error.
What are some of the ethical issues that must be considered in
introducing cars like this to mainstream society and widespread use?
