Autonomous vehicles have captured the public imagination in recent years with promises of improved safety, access, and productivity. While vehicle automation offers significant potential benefits, the public discussion is often confused by the various technologies involved, the socioeconomic implications of those technologies, and the role of public policy. This is perhaps most apparent in the regular conflation of advanced driver assistance technologies aimed at improving human driving and automated driving systems designed to relieve human drivers of responsibility.
Reason Foundation, Brookings Institution, and Princeton Autonomous Vehicle Engineering recently held a clear-eyed webinar conversation aimed at correcting common misconceptions and injecting a dose of realism into the public debates surrounding autonomous vehicle technology, economic, and public policy issues.
In the webinar you can watch below, I am joined by:
- Alain Kornhauser, Professor, Princeton University
- Clifford Winston, Senior Fellow, Brookings Institution
- Moderator: Fred Fishkin, Producer, Techstination
This webinar was recorded on October 12, 2022.
