You'll know that they're starting to make headway when they finally realize that self driving cars also require microphones, to hear the mournful wail of the ambulance which is perfectly obscured behind the van with the blaring horn trying to get the deaf self driving car to move over at the red light.

Or that odd thumping noise, indicating a tire is about to go BANG.
Ears. That'll be the first clue that these brilliant designers have achieved their first clue.

A.I. in the outdoors requires senses. All of them.
Where's MobileEar ?
