In July 2016 in Florida a Tesla Model S with the Autopilot failed to see what most sober people would most likely see, a "big rig", a semi, an articulated truck blocking its path. Perhaps using customers as beta testers was not such a good idea. Now, I'm not talking about Bill Gates or Elon Musk, I mean common everyday people are afraid. Humanoid robots, Atlas included, are clinking, clunky, toddling, oversized remote controlled TOYS. Death is only inches and a buggy (no pun intended) program away. Still it will be a decade before it or any other robot car (or "driverless car" if you must) is on sale at a showroom near you. Please welcome Old ETC who is now writing for Robots and Androids.
