As artificial intelligent technology becomes more integrated into our daily lives, it may have a profound effect on how everyday objects look and behave. It’s especially true of autonomous vehicles.
While the first self-driving cars in development have been built upon human-controlled designs, AI will steer vehicles design past traditional shapes and features. With fewer human factors to worry about, the shape and behavior of vehicles could change radically. And, it could all start with something as simple as headlights.
Rutan’s Automotive Practice Co-Chair Ravi Mohan was recently quoted in Ars Technica about the future of autonomous vehicles and what we can expect from the industry in the future.
“There will be a significant innovation when it comes to companies vying for users’ attention in the car. If the vehicles will have some degree of autonomous driving implements in the future, then for sure, we can expect advertisements, streaming audio and video and other media to be included in the vehicle.”
