Is Driverless home delivery the fastest route to Affordable Mobility for the Mobility Disadvantaged?
Insurance: For or Against SmartDrivingCars?
Of course Insurance is For SmartDrivingCars. Both are all about Safety. So why isn't insurance really leading the way unabashedly promoting this new technology? Why are there so many articles warning autonomous cars will lead to the demise of the industry? Why??? Join in the Discussion.
Everyone’s for Connectivity; but…
What’s it for? (Comfort, Safety, Control)
Who owns the data/information? (The Individual, The OEM, The Government)
Who controls privacy? (Me, Judicial oversight (Court order)/Rescindable through “Patriot Acts“)
The Future of Public Roadway Transit

Zoom-tank Zoom-inars are a live distance learning extension of the very engaging “shark-tank” segments of the Annual Transportation Research Board Automated Vehicles Symposium held traditionally in July. Physical distancing imposed by Covid-19 motivated this experiment of conducting the AV Shark-tank synchronously on Zoom. The format of a short debate (5 minutes plus 2 minute rebuttal) by two learned individuals followed by a moderated 20 minute discussion engaging four sharks probing the debaters. The remaining 20 minutes are devoted to addressing questions and issues presented by per-registered Zoom-inar participants that have been engaged on-line synchronously since the beginning of the Zoom-inar. Late admission to the Live session is enabled avaliable through a separate YouTube link that enables only passive participation by the attendee. The Zoom-inar duration is scheduled for one hour; however, an informal discussion among debaters, panelist and attendees will continue if appropriate.
Registration is FREE … However, we do accept contributions to help offset the necessary overhead production costs incurred by Princeton Autonomous Vehicle Engineering (PAVE) research group that are necessary to produce these Zoom-tank Zoom-inars. Contributions are Gifts to Princeton University’s PAVE research group to support its knowledge dissemination activities which include the “weekly” preparation and distribution of the SmartDrivingCars eLetter, the “weekly” SmartDrivingCars Pod-casts and Zoom-casts.
