Reshaping the world with driverless vehicles: Autonomy author Larry Burns

Techstination feature for Monday, September 24, 2018

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.     How will self driving vehicles change all of our lives?   Larry Burns is a former GM executive and long time advisor to Google’s Waymo self driving vehicle program….and he is the co-author of a new book titled…Autonomy: The Quest to Build the Driverless Car and How it Will Reshape Our World…

“When you get to that stage of tailor designing it, making it electric, making it driverless, it becomes so much simpler, much more affordable.   In terms of how is it going to impact my life I don’t think that a lot of people have  pulled that string all the way through to the exact design of the vehicles and the mobility systems that’ll be behind those vehicles.   That’s going to have profound impacts on people’s lives.”

Larry Burns…author of Autonomy.    It’s a great, worthwhile read that explains where the technology comes from , where it is today and where it is going.
