This is a future that is within reach, with a clear path towards safety verification and validation, and which has the potential to resolve many of the current issues with mobility, especially in urban areas, by reducing the demand for parking, traffic congestion, as well as increasing the availability and affordability of transportation options. EMILIO FRAZZOLI is a professor in the MIT Aeronautics and Astronautics Department and the CTO of nuTonomy Inc., a startup developing autonomous mobility-on-demand systems, which he co-founded with Karl Iagnemma in 2013. His current research interests focus primarily on autonomous vehicles, mobile robotics, and transportation systems. Emilio Frazzoli may be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
