When Are Self-Driving Cars coming to Oakmont?

“Exploring Our Future in Oakmont”
Next meeting – Thursday, January 3, 2019
5:30-7:00 PM in Room B in the CAC.

The newly formed “Exploring Our Future in Oakmont” Club met on December 6 to discuss Smart Devices – the wide range of devices we can use in everyday life – from Alexa to the iPhone.  

Our next meeting will focus on technology in transportation.  Today’s cars have changed dramatically from those of just a few years ago – from safety to navigation.  Have you used Waze yet?

Amazingly, the era of the Self-Driving Car has arrived – General Motors, Volkswagen, and other major auto makers all are working on the autonomous vehicles – not to mention Tesla.  Waymo, a Google subsidiary, is going live this month with driverless vehicles offering ride services in a 100-mile radius around Phoenix.

Come to the meeting and bring your questions and experiences to share.

The Futures Club is working in Special Interest Groups.  There are major topic groups: “Smart Home”, “Smart Devices”, Transportation, and Medical.  There are also background groups: “Artificial Intelligence”, “Privacy vs Personalization”, and “Aging in Place”.  If you’d like to be part of one of these groups, just email us and we’ll get you in touch with the group leader.

We’re also about to initiate a study of technology use in Oakmont.  If you’d like to see how you stack up with other residents, send your email to us and we’ll include you in the study.
