I always felt automated driving on highways should be doable enough, assuming the idiots around you don't run you off the road. Would be nice to set the autopilot, relax, and be alerted to take back over manual control when you're reaching some designated exit a few hours later. That level of automation alone would be great for people who spend lots of time on the highway. And once the kinks are worked out, these things would probably be safer drivers than people.
