MIT researchers determined that 1 billion autonomous vehicles, each driving for one hour per day with a computer consuming 840 watts, would consume enough energy to generate about the same amount of emissions as data centers currently do. Image: Christine Daniloff, MIT
In this episode, we talk about a research study from MIT that estimates the carbon emissions associated with autonomous vehicles will match that currently produced by all of the data centers in the world along with how to address it.
