Our long-term vision is one of
"vehicles that do not crash."

About 35,000 lives are lost every year due to road accidents in the US. In intersections alone, there are about 8,500 fatalities. More than a million accidents and injuries per year take a major toll on productivity. Most accidents occur due to human errors such as distractions, tiredness or other forms of impairment. Traffic delays cause driving commuters to spend an aggregate week stuck in traffic every year, leading to huge losses in productivity.
