Why people might by no means use autonomous automobiles


Automated driving is constantly advancing, but one key ingredient is still missing: trust. Host Jennifer Strong meets engineers who are building a new language of communication between automated vehicles and their human occupants. This is a crucial missing element on the way to a driverless future.

We meet:

  • Dr. Richard Corey and Dr. Nicholas Giudice, founder of the VEMI Lab at the University of Maine
  • Ryan Powell, UX Design & Research at Waymo.
  • Rashed Haq, VP of Robotics at Cruise
