Vivek Wadhwa: Move over, humans, the robocars are coming

Innovation Opinion: My prediction is that in fewer than 15 years, we will be debating whether human beings should be allowed to drive on highways.

That is why our automobiles need tank-like bumper bars and military-grade crumple zones. And it is why we need speed limits and traffic police. Self-driving cars won't have our limitations, writes former Triangle tech entrepreneur turned academic and author Vivek Wadhwa.
