Electric car collaborations and satellites in space help to alleviate climate change- AI for Climate- Issue 48: CogX – AI for Climate Briefing

Climate Change & AI

A typical ride-hailing vehicle will on average drive 45-50,000km a year, versus 12,000km for a normal vehicle. That’s why Arrival and Uber are collaborating on an affordable electric car for ride-hailing.  Apparently it will also be designed in partnership with Uber drivers.

Imagine how much cleaner the air in capital cities would become. Given Arrival is said to also be working on a bus and a van, a cleaner transportation eco system might really become a reality in the future. Might this radically improve not just the health of our planet but the health of those living in cities too?
