Jay Richards interviews Bruce Agnew, Director of the ACES Northwest Network, about the collective’s work to bring Automated, Connected, Electric, and Shared vehicle technologies to the Puget Sound region. Agnew says that 5G will be key in implementing autonomous vehicles as it will increase bandwidth and reduce latency, thus adding a degree of technical capacity and safety.
