Google Inc., Tesla Motors, and General Motors are just a few of the companies at the forefront in designing new techniques and implementing hands-free driving elements into their vehicle designs.
While complete self-driving vehicle systems are still years in the making, elements on a smaller scale, such as hands-free traffic navigation, in-vehicle wireless networks, and robotics systems that watch for potential crash hazards, are already causing reasons for concern.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is currently deciding what standards and regulations should be applied to this new, yet unfamiliar technology.
