    Looking toward the future of “driverless technology,” many envision robot cars acting as chauffeurs during the daily commute, allowing passengers to relax or be more productive on their way to work. However, that reality is still a long way off. 

    In his article for The Hill, Eversheds Sutherland (US) Partner Michael Nelson discusses that to get there, industry, the scientific community and the government will have to expend tremendous resources and, more generally, society will have to adapt and relinquish some privacy and control. The end result will be a safer, more efficient transportation system less burdened by the need for human oversight.
