Once they were the stuff of science fiction, but almost out of nowhere, self-driving cars have become a reality. Experts suggest that driverless cars will appear on our roads within five to twenty years, and Uber has already piloted a self-driving car program in select cities. Driverless cars are undoubtedly cool, but are they safe? Why do we need self-driving cars? Is it a case of technology creating a "need," or will they actually provide a benefit to society? This fascinating and timely volume offers a diverse array of perspectives written by experts on this twenty-first-century subject-- Provided by publisher.
