Agreed, Rob. It's interesting that we accept those 30,000 fatalities so readily, yet resist autonomous vehicles in many cases.

I agree, Cabe. With upwards of 30,000 Americans dying in auto accidents each year, we have a real problem. We certainly wouldn't put up with 30,000 people daying each year in plane crashes or by terror attack. Time to make cars safer.

Transport vehicle 1st designs via Leonardo da Vinci.

Actual built model would be Karl Benz – first gasoline based automobile.

 

I would like to see a world of connected cars. I think it would be a safer place.

Nice video, Cabe. Quick, tell me who invented the automobile. OK, tell me who invented a process to make the automobile affordable. Ford of course. You're right, Cabe, finding a way to make a product affordable may be the most significant aspect of a product's success.
