The widespread adoption of driverless vehicles promises greater roadway efficiency, fewer accidents due to distracted driving, and greater access to motor vehicles for people of all ages and abilities. Several legal, infrastructure, and consumer issues provide obstacles for their proliferation, but the development and implementation of autonomous cars is revving into high gear.
Several key developments have paved the way for autonomous cars throughout the last 100 years.
Motorists don’t have to turn over total control to computers. Several emerging technologies, such as the following, could offer options for partially autonomous vehicles:-
According to a survey by J.D. Power and Associates, more than a third of motorists would use a vehicle with autonomous technology, but that percentage drops when the cost is involved.
Additional findings from the J.D. Power and Associates report suggest that motorists want options when it comes to driverless cars.
Legal obstacles, consumer trust, and infrastructure hurdles will be barriers to widespread adoption, but the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers predicts that autonomous vehicles will account for 75 per cent of cars on the road by 2040. Here’s what the IEEE envisions for the future of driverless vehicles;
