    So does "Autopilot" mean  the "Auto"mobile has a pilot option or
    does it mean  an "Auto"matic pilot option????
    Either way.........................Dumbest idea of the 21st century.
    Now we have degrees on how much attention we can pay to the road.
    Can't wait for all of this self-driving car crap to run off the rails, and it will be a field day
    for lawyers.  Insurance, accidents, system failure, fatalities, blame, liability, hackers and eventually these manufactures will go BK from all the claims..........................dumb, dumb, dumb, all in the name of keeping your face in facebook, instead of driving.
    NOT ONE, (ANY AGE) person I know has any interest in a self driving car
