Ebi Gömek wrote her thesis in California, which is where she fell in love with the future. In Silicon Valley she was first exposed to autonomous vehicles as an engineer. And she knew immediately that she’d found her life’s work.
Since the spring of 2017, Ebi has been leading Autonomous Driving at MOIA. In this video she explains why autonomous driving is going to change our cities. Studieshave shown that just 5% autonomous vehicles on the streets can significantly reduce the number of traffic jams.
Besides the technology, Ebi is also fascinated by the fundamental questions this new mode of transportation raises. How will society react when computers become more affordable, more efficient, and safer drivers than people? And how will we use the new spaces created by these new mobility solutions?
At MOIA, Ebi explains, people have a unique mentality. “We never say ‘that’s impossible’. We say ‘let’s change it!’” The fact that our team is as diverse as our customers and their goals surely helps in this respect.
