Hi guys just curious how you would spend your time commuting if you no longer had to control the car ?
I know I'd rather play a few hours of Halo but I reckon most people will use the time to be more productive.
Genuinely interested then hear everyone's thoughts.

So it's going to be just like traveling on an intercity train that isn't overcrowded. I used to work and research stuff that took time.

But times change and I am long retired.

Nowadays I suppose that the continuous connectivity would make sure that you had no peace for thinking time.

That's progress!

If I am not controlling a vehicle I tend to suffer quite badly with motion/travel sickness so it's not like I could really enjoy my time being driven, and especially not do anything like playing a few hours of games like you suggest. As a result I would rather keep the control of the car myself if possible.

If it wasn't for that, then my answer would probably be more sleep.

As the OP specifies commuting I'd think that after the novelty period most people would fall in to one of two camps. The workaholics (who are probably already on the phone now) who will just work some more, and the average who will just sleep some more, so effectively getting up later.

That does assume a reasonable length of time though - if it's only a 15 minute or so journey it's going to be hard to really get into anything much.

Car manufacturers such a jaguar are spending quite a lot of time, effort and money to look at motion sickness. I'm the same as you. I have to be in the driver seat or front passenger. At the back if I don't keep my eyes looking at the road I get motion sickness. Same on a train. I try to be productive and get my laptop out but I last at most 20 to 30 minutes before I feel sick.
So I would probably sleep in an autonomous car or maybe watch porn though that might only keep from feeling ill for 5 minutes :)
