The Future of Autonomy

In the 2017 Spring Junior Studio, our class partnered with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles to imagine a future of autonomous cars. Given the prompt, "Imagine a city in which vehicular autonomy is widespread," we set out to research potential applications of vehicular autonomy, and to design a city-level system in which autonomy can act as the foundation of a service that brings people together as a community.
