That's probably the easy part (computer figure out best racing line without other driver).

I can definitely see when autonomous driving is useful, for example traffic jam, 8 hours drive, or you can just walk out and have car park itself then hail it back, or even have itself drive to the dealer for service, so you're not wasting times then stuck with loaner
