About the Course

The drive toward self-driving cars continues to accelerate at an unprecedented pace and the promise of more accessible, lower-cost, and safer mobility options has electrified a broad discussion about the future of mobility and transportation around the world. Automated and driverless vehicles, sometimes known as autonomous vehicles, are a shining star in our collective digital futures as they will play an integral role in how we move people and goods from point A to point B. Despite this excitement, there are many challenges to overcome and many questions to be asked about this technology and how it will impact communities around the world. This Teach-Out was originally developed in 2019 in partnership with Mcity, the University of Michigan’s public-private partnership devoted to advancing the development of connected and automated vehicles. For this relaunch, Siemens Digital Industries Software contributed to new and updated content related to the evolving technology of connected and automated vehicles, workforce development, and smart cities. In this Teach-Out, you will hear leading experts in technology, law, accessibility and equity, and societal change. The Teach-Out will address the following questions: What is a self-driving car? What is an automated or driverless vehicle? What are the major legal questions? What can we do to prepare? How do we build trust in this new technology? How are we testing this technology and when can we expect to see it on the roads? How is this going to change our modern society? How are people thinking about accessibility and equity? How do we train the next generation workforce for self-driving cars? What is a "smart city"?...

Since the first day a human dared to defy the limiting rule of horse on human transportation topics and sat behind a steering wheel to face the winding roads while trying to get control over the fury of a rumbling and smoking mass of steel on round wheels we humans have faced the challenge of learning how to carefully coordinate mind and body in order to protect ourselves and others from mistakes during our splendid and magnificent human adventure with energy and speed.

Now it is time for us to step aside and allow robots to take the challenge and enjoy the ride.

Very interesting and informative.

The addition of a review of the position of commercial manufacturer's current status and some examples of in use self driving vehicles (such as at airports and promotional events).
