But it takes up a seat... the "driver's" seat is prime viewing real estate if you're not actually driving

Maybe the paramedic bot doesn't drive. It doesn't even have legs to reach the gas and break pedals. I guess it could just plug in to the van's computer. But why build a robot driver when you can build a self-driving car?

Someone/something has to load & unload stretchers.

well, it has some sort of power to allow it to hover and move - maybe it can use that to work the pedals?

FWIW, it's quite possible that this bot, unlike PX and others, genuinely is non-sentient. If Devilcorp can create sentient androids, it's kind of silly to think that it can't create automatons that are far more complex than real-world automatons without actually crossing the line to sentience. A driving robot is, at base, just an extrapolation of a GPS, and I think that most people will concur that GPSs aren't sentient. Most people.

haven't you read those news stories about people following their gps's directions and driving into buildings or rivers or things? those things clearly _are_ both sentient and evil.

which means, of course, that devilcorp totally makes them.
