Why self-driving cars will revolutionize all aspects of transportation

Professor Nick Reed, academy director at the UK's Transport Research Laboratory (TRL), is one of the leading lights in autonomous vehicle research and is currently overseeing the GATEway project – testing autonomous shuttles on the streets of Greenwich, London. Here, in a video of his recent TEDx talk in Reading, England, he gives a fascinating overview of the history of autonomous vehicle research and the challenges of making such vehicles part of everyday life in the future. He also conveys his passionate belief that the arguments in favour of such technology will soon become overwhelming. Professor Reed is a regular speaker at the Autonomous Vehicle Test & Development Symposium in Stuttgart, to book your delegate pass for next year's event click here.
