Thank you Experientia to bring this story to us. Just last night I was having a conversation with a friend about autonomous cars. The future on how our traffic patterns will change, and how this will affect our communities is for sure unknown.
We talked about Amazon smart warehouses and its Kiva Robots. Why are they so efficient? Because there is not humans interacting with them. The challenge for Nissan or any other firm that is trying to develop this technology is to find that sweet spot between Amazon smart warehouses and 5th Ave (I live in NYC).
Our routes has more than just cars, it has houses, retails stores, other types of transportations, and of course humans. I wish the best to Melissa Cefkin in finding that sweet spot.
