Emergency Medicine Doctor Says Self-Driving Ambulances Could Soon Be Reality

From CBS Pittsburgh:

Uber is testing self-driving cars in Pittsburgh.

But cars are one thing. What about self-driving ambulances?

A local expert in emergency medicine says it’s not only possible, but likely to happen, and sooner than you may think.

“I think it’s a question of not if but when,” said Dr. Paul Porter, Allegheny Health Network Emergency Medicine Physician.

He believes self-driving ambulances will improve care by allowing both paramedics to help a patient rather than having one of them have to drive.
