Radiocasts | April 26, 2016 by Bonnie D. Graham

The buzz: Patience is a virtue…

They’ve been arriving since the 1930s. But when will one (or more) autonomous vehicles be in your garage?

It all depends on the roadblocks ahead.

Relatively easy issues: technology and standards tweaks, societal adoption, safety-proofing, benefits clarification.

The complex, costly challenge: existing infrastructures must be developed, modified and well-financed to support the technology of driverless vehicles.

Are you patient?

The experts speak.

Heather Ashton, IDC: “The axis of the earth sticks out visibly through the centre of each and every town or city” (Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.).

Otto Schell, GM: “Life can only be understood backwards, but it must be lived forward” (Soren Kierkegaard).

Larry Stolle, SAP: “The reality about transportation is that it is infrastructure oriented. If we are planning for what we have, we are behind the curve!” (Anthony Foxx, U.S. Secretary of Transportation).
