Have you heard about the Chevy Bolt GM driveless car?

IN BRIEF
General Motors is getting ready to test a supposedly fully autonomous version of their Chevrolet Bolt, called the Cruise AV, by 2019. In order to test it, the company has filed a petition to the U.S. NHTSA to allow some changes to safety rules.
NO-DRIVING EXPERIENCE
Veteran automaker General Motors have asked federal transportation authorities to allow changes in existing safety regulations so they could field an autonomous version of their Chevy Bolt, now called the Cruise AV, by 2019.
The reason for the Safety Petition? Well, if you’ve seen the Cruise AV, it’s not similar to other driverless cars currently around. This one really doesn’t want you to drive it. The Cruise AV doesn’t have any steering wheel and pedals.
See link.

A little,yes, but this is the first I heard that the vehicles didn't have a steering wheel.
I don't know. That might be jumping the gun a little bit.
It is just for testing, but still.

At any rate, it looks like they'll be giving Musk a run for his money.

I agree, worse yet what if, it is hacked or stops working. My philosophy is better safe than sorry and always have a back up plan.

I think it should too.
Even if it's just so you can switch to manual for some reason. Like say if the automated software has a problem and you need to get to work. Without a wheel, you'd be stuck.

I think it should have a wheel just in case. I would not buy that.
