MIT Smarter Electric Vehicles Systems For Smart Cities

Smart electric vehicles are a big project at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge. Electric vehicles could be delivered when drivers need the cars, rather than have cars sitting parking lots waiting for a driver. These new technology transportation systems incorporate new batteries, new electric motors, GPS, computers, and search technologies to deliver a new driving experience. In this video, Ryan Chin, Research Specialist at MIT Media Lab, describes the next technology stage for electric cars where smart transportation systems are used to provide a vehicle on demand.
