Driverless Car AI

A realistic driverless car system of today would be a compromise of technology, not a full AI. It would not be a free-reign system, but specially adapted lanes on freeways. Specifically you would need a minimum of 2 dedicated lanes - one as a merging and slow lane and the 2nd for a fast, passing lane.

Such a system would be possible today. Though it would not eliminate the need for drivers fully, drivers could sleep on long stretches until the system alerted the driver of a coming exit.

If cars were adapted with some basic communication of gps and speed data, they could accelerate and brake synchronously in long chains and thus condense traffic and save gas by decreasing air drag.
