2/27/18 John Bowis, of Chevy Chase Cars, talked about autonomous (hand free) vehicles and the future of mobility. Cars have represented a freedom of movement and joy for over 125 years, but not so much anymore. There are 253 million cars and trucks in US today with 6m crashes a year, 2m injuries, and 37k deaths. Autonomous vehicles are the solution to regaining mobility and joy. They reduce accidents by over 90%, are lighter weight, much more efficient (electric), and cheaper. John predicts that in 10-15 yrs from now we will all be driving autonomous vehicles. They might even be mandated by the government for safety reasons.
