Zooming Ahead: The Future of the Driverless Car

Listen in pop-out player

The driverless car is racing through the pipeline and might be on our roads within 10 years, according to the developers of Google's new unmanned car. Is it safe and what are the legal obstacles? Justin Webb is in California to talk to Google about its development. Also at Google we meet Frederik G. Pferdt, head of Innovation & Creativity Programs who gives us a tour. Aarthi Ramamurthy, founder of Lumoid, is a tech sector entrepreneur offering the hire and sale of photographic equipment, using the latest data collection technology to steer her business. And, we meet the California Governor Jerry Brown who tells us why, despite its extraordinary contribution to the growth of the US economy, he believes the global tech sector needs to be reined in. Plus, Lucy Kellaway considers how many hours we work - do we really work as hard as we think we do?
