The Osborn is pleased to host engineer and author Sam Schwartz to talk about the impact of driverless cars on our highways, our cities, and our workplaces. Schwartz, a former New York City cabbie, is an American transportation engineer. He helps solves highly complex traffic and transportation challenges for government, private sector, not-for-profit and community clients all over the world. The presentation will draw from his book No One at the Wheel: Driverless Cars and the Road of the Future and Street Smart: The Rise of Cities and The Fall of Cars.
