Should Your Driverless Car Hit a Pedestrian to Save Your Life?, John Markoff, NYT, June 23, 2016

In March this year, meanwhile, a young child was saved by a driver after slipping between a train and the platform edge at Finchley Road station. The Jubilee Line train was equipped with semi-automatic train operation technology, but the automatic system incorrectly gave the all-clear for the train to start moving again. ...

Experience of driverless technology over the last ten years has proved that the gradual transition to automated train operation is a virtual inevitability. Even retrofitting the technology into an old underground system like London's now has a precedent, as the Paris Metro's oldest line, Metro Line 1, has now made the transition to driverless operation, with the last manually driven trains due to be phased out completely by the end of 2012.
