Physical Internet - A framework on which to run transportation "apps" such as "schoolbus", "ambulance", "commuter", etc.
The biggest cost of the manually driven automobile is -- you guessed it right (or did you?) -- TIME!! There are more than 250 million vehicles in the United States, with an average commute time of 100 hours/year. If the entire nation switched to automated transport, we would gain 25 trillion hours a year. Productive use of a fraction of this time will have a significant impact on GDP. Imagine: No drunk driving, no parking, no mechanics, not even a DMV!
