Presentation: While the timelines are uncertain, self-driving consumer vehicles are a certainty, and this innovation will significantly impact society in terms of traffic, commuting, car ownership and employment.  And, this idea of vehicle autonomy is not new. We’ll take a look at the extensive deployment of self-guided vehicles in agriculture and construction today and the impact that these technologies have already had. Along the way, we’ll take a brief look at how all of this technology works.
