Corey speaks to Grid about autonomous vehicles

Richard Corey, director of the Virtual Environment and Multimodal Interaction (VEMI) Lab at the University of Maine, spoke to Grid about whether autonomous vehicles will be able to push gas-powered cars off the market. Corey discussed the issue of how people will interact with autonomous vehicles once they become more prevalent, and discussed VEMI Lab’s Autonomous Vehicle Assistant (AVA) software, which is meant to address accessibility challenges for autonomous vehicles. “There has been a realization over the last few years that without human input, it’s going to be very difficult for these cars or other apparatuses to work. Without human input, there’s going to be some really interesting problems,” Corey said. Wired Focus shared the Grid article.
