    They have three more shots at it. From what I saw this afternoon, self driving cars are a long WAY away.

    Siemens' autonomous 1965 Mustang will attempt the Goodwood hill climb

    The autonomous Mustang is scheduled to climb the former Lord March's hill July 12, and will continue to climb twice a day until the festival concludes July 15. When not harnessing its binary-locomotive talents, the classic will be on display in the event's main paddock where you'll likely find people bewildered at how Goodwood's first autonomous road car is riding on rear leaf springs that appear to be borrowed from the 16th century.

    I kind of knew that would be a waste of time.

    The idea of automated cars reminds me of these lines from The Lost World: Jurassic Park:
    John Hammond (JP's founder): "Don't worry, I'm not making the same mistakes again."
    Dr. Ian Malcolm: "No, you're making all new ones."​
    Yeah, brilliant idea - replace drunk, distracted, and otherwise asinine driving with software bugs, computer viruses, and hacking!
