On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
As early as this summer, you may see cars on the highway doing some of the driving themselves: accelerating, braking and even steering. Cars outfitted with lasers, radars and cameras will feed data to their on-board computers, which constantly calculate and adjust the vehicle’s speed and distance from other objects. But if the car hits a tree, who’s at fault–the automaker or the hands-off driver? Tech Tuesday explores the arrival of semi-autonomous driving and the many questions it raises about safety and liability.
