This House unanimously approved the self driving car bill that gives manufacturers more leeway to test their vehicles by allowing the industry to put up to 100,000 vehicles on the road annually with exemptions from federal safety standards. My guess is most of the 100,000 cars will go to cities already testing SDC's and are already 3D mapped; San Francisco, Phoenix and Pittsburgh. And into SDC rideshare systems already operational like; Uber, Google and Gm. If 33,000 SDC's go into each city, how will that affect current Uber drivers? The cars will still have a safety driver but the pax won't be taking a regular Uber. I'm not saying it's going to happen this year, but it could. All the pieces are in place. https://www.ft.com/content/378cada4-934f-11e7-bdfa-eda243196c2c Don't hate the Tomato, he's just the messenger.
