Well, companies like Nutonomy are pacing up to introduce driverless cars for people and I heard a Singapore company is starting their driverless taxi service in 2017. They already got Homologations cleared.
I think what you propose about driverless cars for taxis and the opportunities that open up for software based on this…
I remember the movie “i-robot” starring Will Smith. In that they show that by year “2018" there will be self driving magnetic flying cars that move on magnetic roads.
It’s 2017 now, and I don’t see any signs of magnetic roads nor flying cars. But thank God we figured out atleast self driving cars atleast.
