#11 William Riggs – Purpose-built urban technologies for liveable cities Automated Mobility : The People behind the Wheel

    • Technology

In this episode, SHOW welcomes a special guest, Professor William (Billy) Riggs from the University of San Francisco. He shares his views on the current deployments of robotaxis in the US, especially through his collaboration with Cruise in San Francisco. We learn about the service in place and how it can complement the public transport system at nighttime. Billy tells us about his vision of a liveable city in which “autonomous travel is connected to our goals of a pedestrian and cycling-friendly city”.
