That was also my original expectation...but then, the said "convenience" angle does help sell "autonomous driving" concept, as far as its marketing is concerned. No?

My expecations are that long distance freeway/motorway driving would be the first opportunity to implement autonomous driving - before automatic parking.

10 years is a stretch. But astute business owners might start making sure that their parking lots come with a smart infrastructure, for sure, I hope.

>I, too, live in Boston. I am nor sure the technology will address the "saved spots" via chairs and cones. Technology does not trump the locals!

For those ouside Boston, Kelley is referring to a practice of placing cones, chairs, trash barrels, and other large items in parking spaces after people take the time to dig out their cars from snow.

In Southie, grabbing a parking space before the snow falls is the new broken beach chair

Cars Vandalized In Boston After Drivers Moved Parking Space Savers

Where I live, there's no overnight on street parking allowed ever so you either have space, rent space, or use public transportation. We don;t ahve the need to save street parking becuase it doesn't exist.

You make eye contact, you lose.

Convenience, especially in cities, will be a deciding factor. I am certainly intrigued by google cars and this concept as well. I wonder if it will just be commonplace in 10 years. 

I, too, live in Boston. I am nor sure the technology will address the "saved spots" via chairs and cones. Technology does not trump the locals!

Ha, ha, Karen. I move my dwellings often. My motivation (and goal) has always been: "ditch the car"!

When I first moved to Boston I found it unnerving how do many drivers don't make eye contact, when say you're both trying to inch into the same lane of traffic. So I can only imagine how much a leap of faith it would be to trust a driverless car would do the right thing. And as for the parking situation, my solution? Ditch the car!!!

Autonomous driving seems too alien (and risky) to most consumers (I assume) and it is a hard sell.

But autonomous parking is something being pitched by the auto industry as "convenience." Debating "safety" takes time, but selling "convenience"? It's easy. There, I see their marketing plot. Am I alone thinking that way?

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
