Will IT pro’s impact the self driving car movement?

As we see more examples of the successes and failures of the self driving car movement, it’s interesting to wonder if a new branch of IT will develop to meet the myriad of technical needs encircling the new technology.  These needs could range from diagnostics, log review, as well as increased cloud infrastructure management for the vendors of self driving cars.  Companies like GM and Ford that historically did not have customer facing IT professionals, may not have droves of IT professionals working to review logs from cars, analyze data on self driving car accidents and review and diagnose other issues as well as software development jobs to update code and key systems both in the cars hardware, firmware and in the backend where the data from the cars is collected and stored.  Please post your thoughts in the comments as well as any predictions you may have.
