Episode Details

Original tape date: January 17, 2019.

First aired: January 28, 2019.

Are autonomous vehicles – driverless cars and trucks and buses – really the wave of the future? Will they upend the U.S. economy like nothing since the invention of the automobile? Will hackers have a field day with these fully-computerized modes of transportation? Bob asks these questions of his guest, Sam Schwartz, known to many as Gridlock Sam. He’s a traffic and transportation expert, a former New York City traffic commissioner, and he now runs his own engineering company. Schwartz has written a provocative new book, “NO ONE AT THE WHEEL: Driverless Cars and the Road of the Future,” and he tells us about some of the new issues we will encounter not far down the line.
