What car do I need for today?
The right vehicle for the trip
Mostly an ultralight
Buy what you use, not what you might need
Your car rents itself out
Or don't buy at all
Greener than transit…
Who killed the electric car?
We can make an efficient short-range electric, but few will buy it.
Robots don't care how convenient it is to recharge or refuel
It's all about marketing!
The end of oil wars
Time for Apollo-like resolve
Range not a factor
Acceleration and speed not a factor
Comfort much more of a factor, soft ride.
Want to be sharable
Different safety constraints
Small width, single passenger or face-to-face, sleepers, RVs
Robots don't care how convenient it is to refuel
They don't care about waiting.
They don't park (they can wait anywhere)
Enables all alternative fuels
We know how to make this car, not how to sell it
Robocars save the electric car
200 million tons CO2
Ending US overseas oil imports
Lobby by children, the aged, the Drunk, and of course, Jews
Can we order our robocar to do something illegal?
They don’t park they stand.
Can stand in driveways, in front of hydrants, double and triple parked
The more cars on road, the more road capacity
Vast alteration of the nature of retail
How we own durable goods & consume food
Comes to transportation
Competing innovators vs. 19th century approaches
vs. Municipal Administrators
Reduced Accidents &
Removing parked cars
As much as 15x more capacity
Computer Intrusion, Bugs
Super Cruise in 201?
Continental & BMW
A pleasant work environment, face to face
No central control or new infrastructure
1. Real Estate & employee planning
2. Plan for rewrite of retail
3. Consider the car as living room
What car do I need for my life?
Chair, Networks & Computing, Singularity University
(Not speaking for Google)
Bottom up vs. central control
Longer range sensors
Reliable computer vision
Liability and Legality
Connected car vs. solo operation
We need to work out liability and tickets
Have to go the speed limit
Must solve "trolley problem"
