#14 Automated driving: mobility’s utopia? – Sebastian Thrun and Martin Hart

Show notes

For decades, experts have been racking their brains over autonomous driving and the extra comforts that it brings. Within the last few years, they have made tremendous progress and are busy developing the most advanced technologies and ever-smarter A.I. solutions for autonomous driving. But what about safety? Is today’s driverless technology really able to deliver what the is being promised? And if not, when will we then witness its breakthrough?

To find answers, our host Yasmine Blair met two top experts in their fields: Sebastian Thrun, CEO of Kitty Hawk Corporation and chairman and co-founder of Udacity, and Martin Hart, Director Driver Assistance Systems & Active Safety a Mercedes-Benz. In the latest episode of Let’s Talk Mercedes – the Mercedes-Benz podcast – they’ll talk about the fine lines between the levels of automated driving and pinpoint the roadblocks to its practical introduction. They’ll also discuss their personal visions of an automated future and ponder how long it might take to convince someone to watch a movie behind the wheel.
