    I work for a fertiliser spreading company. We operate spreaders that use Auto Steer, a GPS guided steering function. Steering only, no brake or accelerator. Accuracy to a few metres. And this is to just go up and down a paddock in straight lines.

    Cost of about $20-$30,000 per unit, with regular repair cost along the way. It's nothing to send off an aerial for a $5000 repair.

    I think we might have a little way to go before we have autonomous road going vehicles at economical cost, that can safely drive down the road with only 500mm clearance to another vehicle.

    I have read recently that with autonomous vehicles dependence on stable external markers (such as road markings, or in the example of aircraft radar markers) we may never have roads of a consistently stable nature suitable for fully autonomous vehicles.
