68 Year Old intrigued by Future SDC

Henry Chester, a 68-year-old Arlington Texas retiree, heard about the demo on the morning news. He said he's been intrigued by futuristic cars ever since his son bought a Tesla. Self-driving cars could solve two problems, he said: cutting down on emissions and taking distracted drivers out of the equation.

"You have to have some faith in technology taking us to where we need to be," he said.

He parked his old 2015 silver Chevy Tahoe and stepped inside the red driverless shuttle.

Yet the small shuttle, which had no steering wheel or brake pedal, offered a glimpse of a future when self-driving cars could make it possible for people to scroll through emails or read a book on the way to work or a Dallas Cowboys game.

Arlington may help make that a reality. It is one of five locations in Texas chosen by the U.S. Department of Transportation as a proving ground where companies and public agencies can test automated technology for cars, trucks and buses. One of the test sites will be Arlington's I-30 corridor -- an approximately 15-mile stretch between Dallas to Fort Worth -- and some streets in and around the University of Texas at Arlington campus.

Mayor Jeff Williams said it's been difficult to convince voters to spend money on light rail or share the roadway with diesel buses. Autonomous cars could provide a third option to shuttle people from hotels, entertainment districts, malls and sports games, he said.

Senior citizens who have lost their ability to drive are probably the #1 target customer for SDCs
