James Anderson, a senior behavioral scientist at the RAND Corporation and a professor at the Pardee RAND Graduate School, joins Auto Trends with JeffCars.com for a two-part conversation in October and November, discussing autonomous vehicles. Anderson was a member of a think tank which was responsible for creating a guide for policymakers on autonomous vehicle technology.
In our two-part conversation, we'll discuss everything from how it feels to be a passenger in a self driving vehicle to the two types of self driving vehicles to what infrastructure needs to be put into place to make this a viable driving option to how it will impact mass public transportation to the obstacles facing this technology to how it will impact personal insurance in case of an accident to how it could change driving age restrictions to how it will impact those who are physically-challenged to when the first vehicles will become available for consumer purchase.
In addition to leading research, Anderson currently serves as a member of RAND's Institutional Review Board and is director of quality assurance for the Institute for Civil Justice. Before joining RAND, he clerked for the Honorable Morton Greenberg of the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit and practiced law for 10 years. He received a J.D. from Yale Law School and a B.A. in ethics, politics, and economics from Yale University.
