Driving Toward Tomorrow
How is technology going to change mobility in the future? How will our lives and our cities change as autonomous cars become a reality? In this talk, I will explain the vision that is being pursued by nuTonomy for a future in which safe, reliable, and affordable mobility is provided to all through a fleet of autonomous shared vehicles, augmenting and complementing other transportation options.
