Don't forget that even Luke's busted old X-34 landspeeder came with a "scanner":

Exactly. I'm thinking most vehicles are equipped with at least a simple Dedicated Energy Receptor, which would allow them to pick up energy sources in its immediate vicinity. Above and beyond searching for lost droids, it would allow a vehicle to detect, say, automated traffic signals, or could tie into a basic auto-pilot.

Hell, we've got them now. For a few months, I was actually assigned to a semi-truck that had a short-ranged active radar tied into the cruise control. It would detect when I was coming up on another vehicle and reduce speed to compensate, even applying the brakes if I got too close. If I changed lanes or the vehicle in front took an exit, it would sense that, too, and accelerate back up to the pre-set cruising speed.

That's awesome. One step closer to full automation. Uh oh.

LOL. Not that close. The thing also had a glitch where the radar would slam on the brakes for no apparent reason because it detected an obstacle that wasn't there.

Freightliner is currently testing a cruise control system that can drive the rig in freewy conditions, including steering, braking and accelerating. It can hold its position in the lane and detect and avoid other vehicles. However, while the driver is hands-off, the system will occasionally encounter a situation where it can't guarantee control of the vehicle, at which point it gives the driver a five-second warning to take over.

Our new cruisers have all kinds of sensors all over them...warning dings for when backing up if it thinks objects are too close. Warning lights and bongs when vehicles are in the side blind spot.

Of course it all goes out the window if there's a snow fall..because it senses that EVERYTHING is right beside the car. Drives me nuts.

Canada will be one of the last countries to get self-driving cars. Mark my words.

Yep! The dogsleds were great, but not great for cornering.

Heck, have we ever seen any of the SW worlds seeming to even have any sort of traffic system?

Coruscant clearly has a very in-depth traffic system with designated lanes with direction of travel for all the airspeeders. That indicates sensors and connection to some kind of navigational network to know where these invisible skyway lanes are.

So, I haven't forgotten about this, but Darth Real Life has kept me a little too busy to focus the mental energy on stat-writing. Next up on the list (by request) are:
    AT-PT
    XP-38
    V-35 Courier (as seen in Mos Eisley in the Special Edition)
    Imperial Patrol Landspeeder (modified V-35)
    Arakyd 74-Z Scout Speeder Bike
    Ikas-Adno Starhawk
    Nebulon-Q Swoop Racer

I'm not so sure I want to do a civilian version of the T-47, as it just doesn't strike me as a good fit for a civilian vehicle. I picture something more along the lines of one of the side-by-side concept art images featured in the Star Wars Sourcebook. I'm leaning toward just co-opting the civilian airspeeder stats shown in the vehicles section and tacking the image onto it...

That all sounds great to me.

Capsule:
Developed concurently with the CAV, the AT-PT was intended a force multiplier, allowing a single individual to control a powerful, mobile weapons platform. However, while the AT-PT had a more versatile weapons system, the CAV was ultimately more effective in its assigned mission, as its greater speed allowed it to cover a wider area. As such, the AT-PT fell out of favor, and is rarely seen in use by the time of the Battle of Yavin.
