Trolleyology has an extensive history, starting with Philippa Foot and then Judith Jarvis Thompson, some of which is referenced in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trolley_problem . The original article was from 49 years ago.

Here is a recent blog essay
http://philosophicaldisquisitions.blogspot.de/2014/02/advanced-trolleyology-and-doctrine-of.html I haven't read it.

It's a great problem as long as you don't have an urgent need to solve it personally, right now :-)

Bruce Schneier's February Crypto-Gram includes a couple of relevant articles about trusting yourself to driverless cars: https://www.schneier.com/crypto-gram/archives/2016/0215.html#1 and the subsequent article.

I think there is no question that these are important issues. Increasingly.
