- Peter Morton

Getting around in a self-driving car that goes from point A to B with the touch of a button may sound like sci-fi, but Peter Morton and his team at Google are making it a reality. Peter studied Mechatronics Engineering and Computer Science at Monash University in Melbourne, and did a PhD at the
Australian Centre for Field Robotics (pictured right) at the University of Sydney.

Now he’s working in California on the Google Self-Driving Car Project. Whether it’s reducing the number of car accidents – 94% of which are caused by human error – giving people back the time
they spend stuck in traffic, or making everyday destinations accessible for people unable to drive,
this ambitious project could revolutionise transport.

Peter loves a challenge and is working at the edge of what’s currently possible. He says it’s vital to try new things. “It’s easy to do what you’re used to, but you’ll learn much more by switching things up.
Say ‘yes’ to every opportunity, and always be on the lookout for new challenges.”
