Vehicles traveled a record 3.1 trillion miles in the U.S. last year. Increased trips in autonomous cars by those two age groups would boost miles traveled by an additional 2 trillion miles annually by 2050, KPMG calculated.

Then the stereo conversion begins, which consists of isolating individual objects in each frame and layering them to give a sense of depth. “The Wizard of Oz” is the oldest film to get this treatment.
