Google Controlling your car or plane?

There's an interesting clause in the Google Maps Terms and Conditions.

"In addition, the Service may not be used: (a) for or with real time route guidance (including without limitation, turn-by-turn route guidance and other routing that is enabled through the use of a sensor), or (b) for, or in connection with, any systems or functions for automatic or autonomous control of vehicle behavior."

Are Google working on controlling Vehicles using Google Maps? Some form of Remote Controlled Car or is this going to be used by Drone aircraft? I wonder why the clause exists...

Probably more as a liability disclaimer than anything else...
