Anthony Townsend argues that the driverless car is a red herring. When self-driving technology infects buses, bikes, delivery
vans and buildings, a wild future awaits. Technology will transform life behind the wheel into a hi-definition video game
that makes our ride safer, smoother and more efficient. Meanwhile, autonomous vehicles will turbocharge our appetite for the
instant delivery of goods, making the future as much about moving stuff as it is about moving people. Companies will link
the automated machines that move us to the cloud, raising concerns about mobility monopolies and privatisation of "the curb".
Our cities and towns will change as we embrace new ways to get around. Ghost Road explains where we might be heading with
driverless vehicles, and the choices we must make as societies and individuals to shape that future.
