Hi Jisbond,

I would insist that the "driver" be conscious. To me that is the key difference between a human driver and an extremely capable robot driver that might mimic human behavior flawlessly. I maintain that no matter how sophisticated the robot might be, there is something which I recognize as conscious awareness in my own mind that I am convinced will not be present in the robot's.

Warm regards,
