Will beaconising the world further promote driving and kill off cycling?

HOST: Carlton Reid

GUEST: Peter Norton.


TOPIC: Episode one in a two-part series looking at adding driverless-car friendly sensors to bicycles, people, lamp-posts and animals.

This follows a talk given at the Geneva Motor Show by a bike industry organisation boss – he called for all bicycles to have beacons so they can be seen by the semi- and fully-autonomous cars of the near feature. Historian Peter Norton – author of "Fighting Traffic"> – discusses the historical, ethical and mobility-centre issues that such a call raises.
