Episode Description

The buzz: Patience is a virtue…They’ve been arriving since the 1930s. But when will one (or more) autonomous vehicles be in your garage? It depends on the roadblocks ahead. Relatively easy issues: technology and standards tweaks, societal adoption, safety-proofing, benefits clarification. The complex, costly challenge: existing infrastructures must be developed, modified and well-financed to support the technology of driverless vehicles. Are you patient? The experts speak. Heather Ashton, IDC: “The axis of the earth sticks out visibly through the centre of each and every town or city” (Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.). Otto Schell, GM: “Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forward” (Soren Kierkegaard). Larry Stolle, SAP: “The reality about transportation is that it is infrastructure oriented. If we are planning for what we have, we are behind the curve!” (Anthony Foxx, U.S. Sec'y of Transportation). Join us for Autonomous Vehicles Now: Impact on Smart Cities.
