          I assume that by robotic you mean that it was being driven by a human being
          but that they were on their mobile phone, eating a burger, fiddling
          regularly with their CD player and staring at their GPS screen. Same thing?

            Simon and all,

            I think these vehicles are actually meant to be
            relatively autonomous (and will do it whatever is
            necessary to fill up their gas tanks!)

            Think "Judgement Day" from the Terminator movies.

            Oil addiction has certainly made me more self-aware.

            Todd
