Media coverage on the prospect of self-driving cars leading the future of transportation has been almost entirely positive, highlighting the potential benefits and avoiding discussion of the numerous questions that remain. At first, Christian Wolmar, a pundit and author who’s been an authoritative source on transport matters for over 25 years, swallowed the hype surrounding this new form of technology. But he didn’t have to look too closely to realize that the hype was undue, with too many technical and social objections to ignore.
On today’s episode, he delivers an overview of the many concerns with driverless cars, and the many challenges that would need to be overcome in order to realistically and safely consider a future in which they are the primary means of transportation. Tune in for an important and informative conversation on this emerging form of technology that’s generating excitement, fear, and uncertainty.
