B-CC Rotary member John Bowis of Chevy Chase Cars Talks About Autonomous Vehicles.

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.
