    To warn off any UFO's, obviously. We DON'T want any collisions between our autonomous car-sized drones and flying saucers.

    The flying saucer men might get VERY angry, and zap the whole Earth with their anti-proton ray guns!

    Don't you ever THINK?!??

    In just a few short years, the vast majority of Americans will (perhaps rather suddenly) realize that computers are really MUCH better than humans at BOTH driving AND flying.

    Then the transition to driverless cars and pilotless planes will happen much more quickly than most people are expecting these days.

    Well, I mostly meant just for WATCHING it. I was watching some drone racing on ESPN a few months back. Looked about like the pod-racing scene in the first of the 'new' Star Wars movies, the movie that people really didn't like very much.

    I greatly respect the ability but have no interest.

    Passenger planes will never go pilotless.

    However the automobile will and so will the military which I am a strong advocate for.

    My moms side were all truckers so I feel sorry for that industry.
