The Squeaky Wheel: Self-Driving Cars

SelfDrivingCar.jpeg

When cars drive themselves, will we all be backseat drivers?  There's something to think about. 

Jokes and philosophy aside, there are many issues yet to be resolved with self-driving cars. 

A simple one: how do they work?  A listener suggested this topic after our last session with mechanic Zach Edwards, the owner of Ashland Automotive

He joins us monthly for a segment we call The Squeaky Wheel.  Cars and computers and the ending of the need to actually drive are at the center of our discussion.
