The Spokesmen Cycling Roundtable Podcast
Monday 26th March 2018
HOST: Carlton Reid
GUEST: Peter Norton.
SPONSOR: Jenson USA
Episode one in a two-part series looking at adding driverless-car friendly sensors to bicycles, people, lamp-posts and animals. (Here’s part two.)
This follows a talk given at the Geneva Motor Show by a bike industry organisation boss – he called for all bicycles to have beacons so they can be seen by the semi- and fully-autonomous cars of the near feature. Historian Peter Norton – author of “Fighting Traffic” – discusses the historical, ethical and mobility-centre issues that such a call raises.
