Because they actually made a autonomous vehicle. It's not only an idea they patented, but the actual product. That's how patents should be granted to begin with.

I hope these are defensive rather than offensive patents, but even a company that currently has a "don't be evil" motto can change at the drop of the hat. You know, founder dies in a plane accident, investors take over and decide to milk the IP for all its worth.

I wouldn't trust a self driving car until there is a good 10 year track record fo less accidents then manual.

I wouldn't trust a self driving car in the presence of manual drivers it he biggest problem. Trying to predict unpredictable humans around you.

Assuming a self driving only area, sensors imbeded into the roads, speed signs, street signs etc. Then i would be happily try it out. I wouldnt trust freeway driving until it was proven safe tho.

This certainly isn't good news for taxi drivers, formula one racers, and FedEx.

This patent is for the UI, which is the User Interface. NOT the technology of the self driving car. As the article points out, it just looks like a normal UI with an extra status bar. Hardly worthy of a patent and clearly based on designs already in the public domain, including my car.

sliemApple would what? They can't even make maps right.

Me thinks if Apple made autonomous vehicles with Apple maps, a lot of people would die. Their autonomous vehicles would fall off a cliff. What a cleaver way to heard the Apple sheep!
