What would you like to do with this meetup group?

Hear expert technical & social opinion on autonomous vehicles.

What, if any, affiliation do you have with autonomous vehicles?

Youthful infatuation with bottle rockets and similar home brew missiles. Have been thinking about getting a Roomba for a number of years now.

How long do you think it will be before we'll be "driving" autonomous vehicles on the road?

Negative second-order effects will relegate autonomous vehicles to specialized and limited uses -- e.g., military, off highway, possibly restricted fleets. Look for proven successful, widespread use in closed campus and fleet situations well before general public highway deployment.


CS/Software R&D background. Currently doing research on the Internet of Things. Cars are certainly Things in this sense and deserve first class Internet presence; actually, any Thing that costs more than, say, a week's income probably does.
