Reader poll: Should the unlicensed be allowed to ‘drive’ an autonomous car?

Two weeks ago we published our first reader poll in collaboration with the Open Roboethics initiative in order to find out more about what people think about autonomous cars

Of the many benefits that may come out of having autonomous cars on the road, one of the main advantages could be that those who are not licensed to drive a car will be able to get around more conveniently. But how comfortable are you with the idea of unlicensed persons as the only passengers in an autonomous car? Would you feel comfortable letting your eight-year-old daughter ride an autonomous car alone to get to school? How about those who are legally blind?

Let us know what you think by taking the readers’ survey below.
