Driverless technology still must meet necessary improvements until it can be fully implemented into society, but Ma believes it is realistic to predict that fully autonomous vehicles will be on the road by 2025.


Companies such as Google, Ford and Tesla are heavily investing in the development of autonomous vehicles. But, according to Ma, these companies only work on developing single cars.


“I work on connecting cars to infrastructure and pedestrians in order to push the capabilities of the system forward,” Ma said.


The ridesharing company Uber suspended its testing and development of driverless cars in March after a pedestrian was struck and killed by one of its autonomous vehicles.


“Such low-probability incidents should not prevent the technology from being developed,” said Ma. “If anything, it should further push us to develop fixes for the problem.”
