“I feel that life is measured in achievement, not in years alone.”

Obviously, the era of self-driving cars is imminent. One of the biggest questions surrounding that is how it will affect people who can’t afford AVs.

Right now in 2018, I have a car with no cruise control. I can go on eBay and buy an aftermarket unit that I can install (or pay someone else to install, yeah right) and have cruise control. I hypothesize that in twenty years, people who want an autonomous vehicle but drive a shitty twenty year old car will be able to go online and buy a computer/sensor suite that can be installed to make their vehicle autonomous. Most cars you buy today are all throttle/steer by wire, so you wouldn’t even need to put motors on the steering column or throttle.
