Computers that power self-driving cars could be a huge driver of global carbon emissions

A new model quantifies emissions that will be generated by computers on fully autonomous vehicles. If self-driving cars are widely adopted, their emissions will rival those generated by all the data centers in the world today. Keeping emissions at or below those levels would require hardware efficiency to improve more rapidly than its current pace.A new model quantifies emissions that will be generated by computers on fully autonomous vehicles.
