Clip-on Robotics for Cars, Planes, and Ships

How does a global transportation system become a robotic transportation system almost overnight?
The answer is clip-on robots.

Robots (and their sensors) that you simply clip onto the driver's seat of the vehicle.

It sees what the driver/pilot/captain would see, both outside and in.  It uses the same controls to control the vehicle.  It hears the same things.

Simple.  Effective.  Inexpensive.  Fast.

    Heh! True for a good many people, but not for everybody. There are a lot of people driving that that would not be correct about. They're the ones dodging the ones who need the robots! :)

    "At the rate things are going, we'll see clip-on driving/flying/sailing systems in the mainstream within a decade..."
