Self driving cars are quickly becoming a reality. While many companies are extending the promise of self-driving cars by 2020, Elon Musk has let his shareholders know that self driving cars will be available within the next three years.
The three-year estimate, Musk says, is when he thinks the technology will be ready. It could take longer for government regulations around the issue to go into effect. He acknowledged that it will take time for regulators to say “it’s okay to go to sleep in the car” — maybe another one to three years.
