DISCUSSION QUESTIONS: What do you see as the main obstacles to autonomous vehicles being used for grocery delivery? How significant is the safety issue and do measures such as airbags address those concerns?

Interactive Edge’s CEO, Zel Bianco comments, featured on RetailWire’s Braintrust:

Like Ian’s comments, I hit a Ferrari that was stopped in front of me at around 3 MPH. Yes, as much as I hate to admit it, it was definitely my fault. The damage to my car which looked like it had very little damage cost just under $10,000 to repair. The Ferrari had a dent in its rear bumper the size of a softball and I can only imagine what that repair cost.

The moral of the story is that a great deal of damage can occur at very slow speeds and at 25 MPH the damage from autonomous vehicles can be so much worse.
