    All very interesting stuff, but there's on major problem with it all...

    How many times have you nearly been killed by some muppet who forgot what his/her indicators, mirrors, brake pedal, accelerator pedal or similar are for at a crucial moment in the relatively two-dimensional constraints of paved-road. Now, imagine all those same numpties in free-space with no white lines...

    Regards,
