Robots of the future are here on the John Batchelor radio show

How close is the future? Autonomous vehicles are getting closer and closer to reality. We are moving away from the recognizable ordinary to a car that lets you superimpose your desires of freedom and adventure.

John Batchelor, the host of the John Batchelor radio show, talked to Lou Ann Hammond, CEO, Driving the Nation about her recent trip to Boxberg, Germany. Hammond attended the 62nd Bosch International Automotive Press Briefing focusing on mobility solutions.

Autonomous vehicles will include connecting cars, other modes of transport, and infrastructure. At the event, we were able to drive the Porsche 918 Spyder plug-in hybrid, a Tesla electric and autonomous Model S P85 and other vehicles that showcased some of Bosch’s newest and best inventions.

The one thing every single car had in common was they all had MEMS/sensors on their vehicles. Sensors are an intricate part of the technology for car-to-car and car-to-infrastructure. They are also part of the safety and redundancy that will be needed to complete the transition.

Listen as Batchelor and Hammond talk about robots, autonomous vehicles, and the future.
