Reading Rainbow Takes On Driverless Cars

I'm one of the few non-technical employees in my office, so I admittedly struggle with some concepts. I get robots and remote control and all that, and while I think they're really cool and want one so I can take a nap while "driving", I'm a little baffled by the technology behind self-driving cars. Yes, I've read all the articles on them, but most are full of jargon and aimed at adults of a certain education level.

So how would you explain self-driving cars to, say, children? Problem solved. LeVar Burton takes on driverless cars in the Reading Rainbow segment below.
