News in Review ​Driverless Cars: Giving up ​C​ontrol in the ​F​ast​ ​Lane

The automobile: the first one was built about 130 years ago and today it's estimated there are 1.2 billion of them worldwide. They've changed how and where we live, work, shop and play. We've rebuilt our cities to accommodate them and created vast industries to build, fuel and service them. So it's no surprise that for young people around the world, two of the milestones of life are learning to drive a car... and buying one. But all that may be about to change. Tech companies around the world, including here in Canada, are competing for territory in the “brave new world” of driverless vehicles.
