Will We Have Self-Flying Cars Before Self-Driving Cars?

Being the first to release an autonomous/autopilot driving software, Tesla started a self-driving vehicle trend that might shape the future of transportation. While the worldwide adoption of self-driving cars seems to be closer than ever, we might have self-flying cars much sooner.

Sebastian Thrun, the founder of Google’s self-driving team and the CEO of his own self-flying vehicle startup Kitty Hawk, talked about the future of autonomous vehicles at the TechCrunch Disrupt SF. Interestingly, Thrun claims that we might be closer to integrating self-flying vehicles into our transportation systems rather than self-driving cars.
