Annually in the U.S., an average of 37 children left in hot cars die from complications of hyperthermia – when the body warms to above 104 degrees and cannot cool down. If a car is parked in the sun on a hot summer day, its dashboard can hit 160 degrees in about an hour. That's also how long it can take for a child, trapped in a car, to suffer heat injury or even die. A recent study by researchers from Arizona State University and the University of California at San Diego compares how different types of cars warm up on hot days when exposed to different amounts of shade and sunlight. The research team also took into account how these differences would affect the body temperature of a child left in a vehicle. Nancy Selover, an Arizona State climatologist and research professor in ASU’s School of Geographical Sciences and Urban Planning, is available to talk about the findings.

Recently, the first fatal accident involving an autonomous vehicle occurred in Tempe, Arizona. The incident has prompted conversations around the world on a range of issues, including the technology powering self-driving cars, liability when there is no human driver at the wheel and how to engage the public in policy decisions. Andrew Maynard, professor in the School for the Future of Innovation in Society and director of the ASU Risk Innovation Lab, offers his take on the future of self-driving cars and what policy and regulatory changes may be on the horizon.
