The Elevator as Autonomous Vehicle

Listening to Tim Harford on a back episode of EconTalk, I was struck by their extended discussion of the elevator as one of the original autonomous vehicles.

The discussion seems both distant from self-driving cars, but also strangely relevant. Harford and EconTalk host Russ Roberts touch on safety, technological unemployment, and traffic optimization.
