Today on the Exponential Africa Show with Mic Mann we welcome Carlo Van de Weijer, a world leading expert and SingularityU faculty member on mobility and automotive! Speaking on autonomous cars and their future impact!
The rise of autonomous vehicles production comes typically as digitisation happens. Digitisation is always followed by disruption creating a race to disrupt ones self before getting left behind. Carlo says autonomous cars are like computer on wheels, self driving vehicles are just one positive aspect of the disruptions and change coming into the industry.
Autonomous vehicles are just one step into the future of mobility, solving many other issues we encounter daily with vehicles like road and passenger safety, cost of vehicles and insurance premiums to name a few. Information gathered through the cameras and the connectivity used to manage these autonomous cars generates great amounts of data that can benefit everyone.
