If you read again, I said "Full autonomy, yes."Ridesharing. You need to get from A to B but do not need to own a car to do it. You simply call up and the car comes. That car then goes back on road picking someone else up. Quite economical this.
You are at a pub/too drunk.
Cars going back and forth between locations to offload packages/gear.
Not wasting HOURS of manual driving when you can do more important things like working/playing games during the journey.
Cars will be fully autonomous and it's happening quick. Within the next decade this will be a norm. The only hazards will be suicidal pedestrians and potentially hacking.
Yes aircraft are much more complicated than land vehicles.
But I was quoting you when you wrote I was "too limited to not see the benefits of self-driving."
Self-driving has no benefits. Unless the car makes you French toast.
