so why did the nfb have to go solo and reinvent the wheel/car instead of colaborating with a company like google?
i have a theory but don't have time for the usual blasting returned.

  I think one of the things we have to admit is that driverless cars will have
  accidents and perhaps they will be different from the accidents that cars
  with sighted drivers have.  There is probably no program in the world that
  has ever been written and run that did not have to be modified.  It is a sad
  truth of the world that important inventions sometimes involve deadly
  mistakes.  Mostly I think this technology will prove in the long term to be
  far safer than human beings driving vehicles while distracted by their cell
  phones, their children, and the list can go on forever.  We are not ready
  yet, but I think the fact that a state like Nevada and a company like Google
  are involved show that this dream goes far beyond what blind people want.
