More Self-driving cars, Fewer Bad Drivers?

Google has been developing autonomous cars for the past few years, amidst similar innovation at Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Volvo. Google has decided to test its autonomous system by building a small fleet of two seated vehicles with a plan that steers away from classic car design and conventional controls, like the steering wheel, brakes, or accelerator pedals. The aim is to “bring this technology to the world safely,” which is why these prototypes will leave no room for human error or even allow a human to take control. So far, these autonomous cars have proven to be better at dealing with unexpected twists and turns and the abrupt stops and starts of city driving.

 


 

The driverless vehicle consists of just two seats, two buttons-- the go/stop and emergency buttons-- and a screen where the route is displayed. In order to navigate itself, the vehicle uses a combination of Google maps, computerized navigation equipment that makes use of laser and radar sensors. The driver uses a smartphone application to summon the vehicle and select destinations. While driverless vehicles have been years in the making, the question has not been if they will become a reality, but when. The introduction of autonomous cars will make roads safer by reducing drunk driving, not to mention the number of bad drivers on the roads.
