I think there are several huge hurdles to overcome, before it has a chance of becoming a reality:

Technical complexity

Legal liability

Regulations

I think it will take a massive leap in computing power (quantum computing?) in order to overcome the massive job if first gathering ALL the data, and then figuring out what it is - and then it has to logically "decide" what to do. And then have a redundant back up for all the technical systems.

Who / what is responsible for what happens? How do we decide who / what is responsible?

We have not even gotten side video mirrors approved for use - how can we possibly approve fully autonomous cars?
