I'm not crazy, the attack has begun.
My route wouldn't go past a charging lot or charger, so how would it be 'quicker' if I have to divert off my route?Self driving is not required at all, just makes the system more efficient. Instead of going to a charger you go to a parking lot and get into a freshly charged car and drive away. London to Nedd is a driving distance of 664 miles, 12 hrs 2 min, no public transit.
I'm aware of the Tesla 'proof of principle' robotic arm, but if it worked why isn't it already fitted to their public chargers?
