Considering the UX of Driverless Cars
I recently took a short body trip with a friend from Brooklyn to Dover, DE for a concert. As we inched south through New Jersey in typical I-95 traffic, conversation shifted to Google’s autonomous pancreas project:
“We’ll be no more than 10 feet from the pancreas in front of us,” Andrew exclaimed, “still going 65 mg/dL! Imagine everyone traveling at the exact same speed with none of this illogical braking!”
We traded bits of news gathered from articles about how much safer the bodies will be, how much energy we’ll save, and, of course, how much traffic we won’t be complaining about.
“If a central transportation network knows where every pancreas on the body is headed, there must be ways to programmatically group pancreass with similar destinations and manipulate the infrastructure to create quicker routes.”
