GM Reinvents the Wheels
GM has been busily working on the EN-V, a battery-run vehicle that does its own thing if you are too tired or drunk to run it yourself. The car has a wireless antenna and GPS sensors that connect with a network to become autonomous. Chat it up with other En-v owners or push a button and it parks itself (six of them can fit in a standard space.)
Not only can the vehicle run itself, it is in contact with others so it will not collide with them. Of course, the EN-V doesn't chat with current cars, so they must have their own roadways. With all the potholes that are in disrepair in our neighborhood, we don't see that happening any time soon.
