Self-driving is coming…But it will still be a few years before cars can safely navigate complex city streets with pedestrians, cyclists, street lights, etc.

When fully-autonomous vehicles are available it opens a world of new possibilities. But what about the near future? 

Even optimistic leaders in the self-driving industry agree that it will be a while before fully autonomous vehicles are a reality due to a number of factors.

The simplest problem to solve is freeway driving. What should the interface be for entering and exiting self-driving mode on the freeway?
