Gabriel is visually impaired, and would greatly benefit from this self-driving car that Google has been working on. Leo believes the technology has been perfected, and it works really well already. Gabriel says he has connections to people working on this, and that they should be ready to go on sale by 2017. Legislation needs to be written in California by 2015 for it.
Leo says California has legalized driving autonomous vehicles for research purposes. Leo doesn't see this happening already in 5 years though, not because of the limits of technology, but because of culture. People aren't going to be comfortable with this that soon. Leo compares the sensation to when his daughter first learned to drive, and he was in the passenger seat. He doesn't suspect that it'll be any easier with an autonomous vehicle. It's being introduced incrementally though, with things like lane assist, blind spot recognition, and adaptive cruise control.
Leo is looking forward to the day where autonomous cars are on the market though, because he believes it would be much safer than most of the drivers on the road today.
