‘Future First’: Self-Driving Cars Will Save Lives

The new industrial revolution

Technology is really a marvel. So often, as new technology comes out and allows 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 seven of Future First is titled “Self-Driving Cars Will Save Lives.” In it, we explore the dangers of humans driving and how autonomous automobiles will make mobility cheaper, convenient, safer, and more productive. Helping to lead the discussion are Seval Oz, CEO of Continental Intelligent Transportation Systems, and Mark Platshon, Senior Advisor at BMW I-Ventures.
