“HOW AUTONOMOUS VEHICLES WILL RESHAPE CANADA”
The author claims that self-driving cars are here today, and will transform the landscape before we know it. They will bring massive benefits to the environment, safety, congestion, land use and accessibility, while dramatically reducing costs. They will also bring many challenges. Is Canada ready? Ticoll will provide an overview of the opportunities, issues and policy priorities.
