Episode Description:

In this episode we discuss the future of automobiles. They’re obviously an essential part of our society, but they also cause problems that have to be solved, like air pollution and urban congestion, and the fact that tens of thousands of people a year are killed in automobile accidents. The guest is Stephen Zoepf, Executive Director of the Center for Automotive Research at Stanford, or CARS, which brings together representatives of industry, academia and government to study how cars of the future can be more human friendly. Topics of discussion include cleaner methods of powering cars, the rise of autonomous vehicles, and a general rethinking of all of our assumptions about transporting humans. Stephen has worked as an engineer and product manager at BMW and Ford, and has served on the technical staff of the U.S. Department of Transportation. He’s won numerous awards and honors, including the Barry McNutt award from the Transportation Research Board, the Singapore Global Challenge, and MIT's Infinite Mile Award for Outstanding Service to the Institute. Martin Wasserman hosts.
