Cover image expansion

COVER Artistic rendering of a driverless car in operation. Automotive and technology companies say that we are well on the road to deploying autonomous vehicles. But the trip could be bumpy, given consumer apprehension about relinquishing control and uncertainty over whether driverless cars will usher in a new age of safer, greener, and more convenient transportation-or simply add to existing problems. See pages 1370 and 1375.
