Cars that can move without human assistance are referred to as autonomous vehicles. |They can sense the environment around them without human assistance. They are also known as driver-less car or self-driven cars. Their control system is advanced and is able to use different sensory ways to detect their surroundings such as GPS, radar, laser light, odometer and even computer vision. Here are some of the benefits of having autonomous vehicles over to human driven cars.
Autonomous cars can control road accidents since they can smell accidents. It is a fact that most of the road accidents do occur due human error, which may be attributable to improper timing of the cars in front of them, behind them and the objects that are around them. Human beings do cause several accidents due to their slow reaction to objects in front of them, behind them and the objects around them. This will be forgotten as autonomous cars are designed in such a way that they can sense the vehicle in front, behind, and objects around them and stop even if the drivers foot is not on the brakes. They are able to sense and react faster unlike people who will still require space to act which will be too late thus making them even suitable to b moved by drunk drivers. Even if the drivers foot is not on the brakes autonomous cars can detect accidents and start braking automatically.
Autonomous cars don’t crash. They have automatic road edge/barrier detection that helps you to automatically steer back on track if you started driving off the road. Even the sleeping and fatigued drivers can move with them safely without crashing. You can also drink and even make a phone call including texting while driving and you will still be on track.
They don’t pollute the environment. Majority of the manual vehicles use gases like petrol, diesel which when burned they produce a lot of smoke and dangerous gases. Petrol and diesel produces smoke and harmful gases that pollute the environment and also harms the living things in the environment. The the risk of polluting the environment is reduced by self-driven cars since they use electricity which does not pollute the environment and is not harmful to living things.
They help in development of the economy. Since they can move faster and escape the traffic easily, they will make a lot of money within a short period. This is going to develop the economy by improving the living standards of the people.
They can move faster with the help of queue assist. Drivers always got trapped in evil ways and cause traffic jam which can take a long time and this wastes a lot of time. But with autonomous cars they will be able to cut off the problems of moving in the wrong places but run in the right place to escape traffic jam.
