This article aims to catch a glimpse of the changes on the driving culture that are about to come and attempt to sketch the contours of these changes. The thoughts I would like to share are more exploratory reflections than an argument, on the possible ways the Autonomous Vehicle’s new technology would disrupt and transform material world, patterns of behaviour and cognitive awareness of the urban landscape. Mainly I am interested in the social and cultural implications of using Automated Vehicles; how the car-bots will transform our urban cognition and ultimately our spatial and temporal perception.
