For a true autonomous vehicle, either auto or aircraft, you no longer need to see outside. Just gimbal the passenger pod and give them a view screen and a camera that they can direct as desired. Even with a 'pilot' controlled unit a gimbaled pod would be pretty easy with a FBW system.Actually that's the one item that concerns me, I can see a number of people getting motion sickness/vomiting from that.
Almost guaranteed. IF the production model actually meets part 103, and it's geo fenced to make the FAA happy, they could be as common as personal water craft and ground bound quads. Who knows? - with all of those new 'pilots' maybe some will want to take on the challenge of old school 3 axis ultralights.I have a nasty feeling that if it does become a 103, it will do to 103s what drones have done to RC.
