How might people spend time when traveling in a fully automated vehicle, and what effect might it have on the intensity of travel? In this webinar, Dr. Bhat will dive into the ways that fully automated vehicles will affect how humans will make use of their time when freed from the task of driving and will discuss how the idea of a productive use of time will be altered.
