Self-driving cars are just the beginning

Auto tech straight out of a galaxy far, far away

Technology is really a marvel. So often, as new advances come out that allow us to do things that were thought impossible in the past, we hear the phrase “The future is now.” Popular Science and XPRIZE are teaming up to explore and explain technologies like these in a video series called Future First.

Episode eleven of Future First is titled “Beyond Self-Driving Cars.” In it, we take a look at how the advent of self-driving technology will save lives and lead to new modes of transportation. Helping to lead the discussion is U.S. Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx.
