“The Promise of Autonomous Vehicles is Great.”–Dan Lipinski
“My opinion is that it’s a bridge too far to go to fully autonomous vehicles.”–Elon Musk
There’s no shortage of opinions on the viability of self-driving cars. Be you a bull or a bear, though, there is no denying that there is a plethora of big players banking on them with R&D spending.
The issues surrounding the technology are too many and complex to deal with all of them in a single podcast. And while things like collision avoidance, navigation, regulation, liability and public acceptance take up much of the debate over the technology, one key element has not so often been discussed. That would be connectivity. To assure safety and efficiency, to any degree greater than currently exists with manually driven cars, they need to be able to talk to each other.
In episode #26 of Seeking Delphi™ host Mark Sackler talks with Alex Wyglinski, president of IEEE’s Vehicle Technology Society and co-chair of the Community Development Working Group for IEEE Future Networks, on how wireless connectivity might enable the technology.
