The delicious freedom of the (fully) driverless car
Rudra's favourite airport, and remember he considers airports to be the Western equivalents of Zen temples, is Stanstead. There you are delivered to your plane in a driverless train.
See Dave's comments below. He refers to one such train at a Malaysian Airport:
"The train, is fully driverless and automated. One example, when the train reaches platform, the exit doors will open first for passengers to disembark and only in a short while, the entrance door at the other side will be open (so called Spanish solution)."
Having just returned from the South of Spain I see how apt this description is. There appeared to be many driverless cars in that region.
