Controlling a car with a smartphone, like in that 007 movie, sounds quite interesting. Some years ago a guy in Saudi Arabia fitted a W140 Mercedes-Benz S-Class with a similar system, but IIRC he used a laptop instead. But anyway, it still sounds more likely to happen than a fully-autonomous car. Only problem would be drunk drivers eventually trying to circumvent the risk of being arrested, driving from a passenger seat and when stopped over by police they might try to claim they're doing anything else on their phones.
