60516103 story Kids With Wheels: Should the Unlicensed Be Allowed To 'Drive' Autonomous Cars? 437 Posted by Unknown Lamer on Monday May 26, 2014 @07:30PM from the ever-heard-of-a-bicycle? dept. Hallie Siegel (2973169) writes "From the Open Roboethics Research Initiative: Earlier this month, when we asked people about your general thoughts on autonomous cars, we found that one of the main advantages of autonomous cars is that those who are not licensed to drive will be able to get to places more conveniently. Some results from our reader poll: About half of the participants (52%) said that children under the legal driving age should not be able to ride driverless cars, 38% of the participants believe that children should be able to ride driverless cars alone and the other 10% also think that children should be able to drive autonomous cars with proven technology and specific training."
