ROAD AHEADAUTONOMOUS VEHICLES

In the not-too-distant future, solar-paneled and electric self-driving vehicles will speed people and cargo from the West Coast to Arizona in half the time it now takes. Autonomous vehicles promise to make surface and air transportation safer and cheaper, reduce congestion and fuel consumption, and ultimately reduce the cost of doing business and increase productivity. The potential offshoots of this technology seem almost limitless. When disaster strikes in isolated regions, autonomous airborne vehicles could deliver medicine, supplies and hope. Unmanned balloons, planes and low-flying micro-satellites will deliver high-speed broadband – connectivity – to every corner of the world.
