Featuring Robin Chase

Published on: March 26th, 2019 • Duration: 7 minutes

Robin Chase, co-founder of Zipcar, discusses why driverless cars could quickly scale to comprise 80 percent of all cars on the road within 5-6 years after the first driverless car hits the market. She also discusses how the "Ten Shared Mobility Principles" she is pioneering can help usher in a future where cities are sustainable, livable and just. This clip is excerpted from a video published on Real Vision on April 11, 2018.

    Creative destruction is one thing......but widespread introduction of driverless technology at such a rapid pace will be catastrophic, driving levels of unemployment higher than can be imagined. I am not a Luddite, but I can't be the only one that sees that this is a technology that needs to be controlled lest it destroy one the major employment sources for the working classes.....

    I wonder if the AI and driverless vehicle enthusiasts are taking note of the problems currently playing out with Boeing, which, IMHO, only scratch the surface of the issues that would be faced in this arena. As an IT and security practitioner who also worked in the rail industry with 30+ years experience, colour me sceptical. Technocratic wet dreams.

    Not trying to knock on Robin too much, because I enjoyed the video, but the idea of paying for the level of "pollution/cleanliness" your vehicle has, although would be good for our environment, is such a "Silicon Valley-Tech" way of thinking, who usually have & come from endless amounts of capital/money. (BTW, I live in the Bay Area & see it all the time) Who are the people with the dirtiest cars, usually? It's the lower income level, who are just trying to hold on to life, and learning to cut cost's to survive. Especially in places like CA. How would that work with her suggestion/proposal?
