Driverless cars are becoming a reality much faster than expected—bringing along social and economic disruptions on a grand scale. For many, driverless taxis will offer greater personal freedom, offering safe and convenient transportation available around the clock for less than 30 cents per mile.

These vehicles also offer the opportunity to rethink what a car might be, redefining our travel environment. The urban landscape will change, too, as parking lots that currently represent as much as a quarter of our cities become parks, gathering and living spaces, and commercial development opportunities. Join author Rutt Bridges (Driverless Car Revolution) for a behind-the-scenes look at the future of the automobile—and how our lives will change as a result.

In this session, you will:
● Learn how to think differently about car design. What will the car of tomorrow look like?
● Know when to expect the driverless car revolution to fully arrive.
● Get a better sense of how driverless cars will shift our urban landscape.

A successful businessman in fields as diverse as software development, oil and gas, and venture capital, Rutt Bridges founded Colorado’s Bighorn Center for Public Policy and is the author of Driverless Car Revolution. He serves on the College of Sciences Advisory Board at Georgia Tech and briefly ran for U.S. Senate in 2006, before stepping aside to support his friend Ken Salazar. He is an expert in the field of disruptive innovation.
