For decades, autonomous vehicles have been heralded as a new technology that could change the way we live our lives. Driverless: Who is in control? opening on 12 June 2019 at the Science Museum will explore how close we are to living in a world driven by thinking machines. Visitors will have the chance to explore three distinctive zones in the exhibition, Land, Air and Water. Each section will explore the different technology solutions already operating in these environments, the motivations of their developers, and their potential to transform a range of activities and industries. From self-driving cars to autonomous flying drones and smart underwater vehicles like the Autosub Long Range fleet which includes 'Boaty McBoatface', the exhibition will explore how much of this seemingly futuristic technology already exists and extends far beyond the cars we're familiar with, how much control we're willing to transfer to them and how their wider deployment could shape our habits, behaviour and society.
