Is there yichud in a driverless car?

Partially based on this question, it seems that a man and a woman who are normally not allowed to be secluded together due to the yichud prohibition may travel in a car together but should not remain in the car once it is no longer moving. I assume the reason that they may be in the moving car is that it is not possible (practically speaking) to have relations in a moving car (even with a car that has tinted windows) while one of the parties is driving it.

I would like to know if this halachic approach would continue to be true in a self-driving car where it is perhaps less difficult to have relations while the car is driving.
