   What's AVIS going to do when autonomous cars and ridesharing put the
nail in the coffin on the car rental industry?
   They have all the experience and facilities to service huge fleets of
cars - cleaning, fuelling, and repairing their own huge fleet of vehicles,
plus they have parking lots and vehicle charging stations at airports and
in urban cores.
   ... so they're exploring becoming a service provider for autonomous
vehicles. After a hard morning of dropping office-workers off, your UBER
will drive out to the airport to wait it's turn in line to be shampooed and
fuelled up and ready for the next customer.


   This is super brilliant.
   How long until every step of the servicing is automated? Robot fuel
attendants, robot carpet cleaners. Little robot that drives along with a
rag and cleans your rims. :)
