Summary, etc.:
An automotive and tech world insider investigates the quest to develop and perfect the driverless car--an innovation that promises to be the most disruptive change to our way of life since the smartphone. Autonomy is the story of the maverick engineers and computer nerds who are creating the revolution. Beginning with the way 9/11 spurred the U.S. government to set a million-dollar prize for a series of off-road robot races in the Mojave Desert up to the early 2016 stampede to develop driverless technology, Autonomy is a page-turner that represents a chronicle of the past, diagnosis of the present, and prediction of the future--the ultimate guide to understanding the driverless car and navigating the revolution it sparks.
