This week the BBC released the second show in a six-part documentary series which examines ITS and transport of the future.
In this episode, presenter Gareth Mitchell investigates driverless cars, and our desire to switch to auto-pilot. How close are we to letting the vehicle take all of the strain – to a future where, through clever computing, the fully automated vehicle takes over responsibility for getting the driver to his or her destination?
The half-hour show is available as a podcast on the BBC Click website here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/podcasts/series/digitalp
In the first episode, broadcast on 30th April, episode one “A Route 66 of the Future” Click road tested new technologies in South Korea and the Netherlands that aim to improve the lives of drivers.
