Clearly, a shift towards driverless cars would completely transform the experience of road travel. But there would be further knock-on effects beyond the car itself. Self-driving vehicles would keep the growing numbers of elderly people in ageing societies mobile for longer, for example...The nature of car ownership could be transformed. Why own a car outright if you can rent or share more cheaply, summoning a nearby vehicle with your smartphone?
