I have zero experience with autonomous vehicles (not even 'park assist' other than the beeping proximity sensors - which seem possible to confuse).
How does such a vehicle receive instructions?
Does one input a postcode?
My satnav is vague when the actual destination is reached (no doubt because postcodes are not pinpoint specific but area specific).
What - after reaching the destination? Does the vehicle attempt to return to base for further instructions?
Perhaps the autonomous vehicle selects a random route and destination that it fancies? Or does it just shut down and await further instruction?

I think we should be told . . .
