ONE of these is/will be pointless

They are developing self driving cars/no need to pay attention to the road while behind the wheel AND also developing NO texting while driving/ texting is disabled on mobile devices while behind the wheel.

Hachigo
 set the goal of achieving level four autonomy, defined as 'mind off' driving, in a far-reaching address in Japan last week. Autonomous driving is defined by six levels, from zero to five. Under level four terms, a driver is required to be close to the controls but does not need to be observing the roads in certain circumstances, such as on motorways

You can sleep while driving but you can't text?

Will they pass a law that says you can't sleep while driving?

Stay tuned....

How many times have you heard someone say

that they hope to die in their sleep? Maybe someone is wanting to make that wish come true.

Re: sleep

Then they will have to refine the "no texting" app to communicate with the car and ask about it's autonomy level and the current circumstances.
Nothing easier for a level 4 or 5 car than communicating to all interested parties.
