This edition: The Future of Driverless Cars with Jamie Lincoln Kitman

Episode Details

Original tape date: April 11, 2017.

First aired: April 24, 2017.

We hear a lot about driverless cars. They’re going to reduce accidents and save lives. They’ll ease congestion and reduce harmful emissions. And they’ll get you to your destination while you’re playing video games, or watching a movie or catching a nap in the back seat. What’s not to like? Well, what happens if the computer operating your driverless car is hacked? And how well will these marvelous autonomous cars and trucks perform on badly-paved roads that are not clearly marked? Or when traffic lights are not properly functioning? Or when something truly unexpected occurs – like a car careening across a highway divide and approaching head-on, or violent criminal activity. Bob takes a look at the pros and cons of driverless vehicles with guest Jamie Lincoln Kitman, a lawyer and the New York bureau chief for Automobile Magazine.
