An autonomous car is an independent car that can satisfy a normal car’s transport capacity simply by controlling and balancing the environment without human intervention or participation. The sensory information is then translated by sophisticated control systems to determine the right navigation routes, appropriate signals, and other obstacles. This aspect means that they constantly update their sensory information based on sensory data, allowing them to recognize their particular positions even when they enter undocumented locations or conditions change. Hence, some people believe this project can reduce self driving car lawsuits in the future. Nevertheless, there are always pros and contra to this project. Some people promote this idea while others reject it. The following are several fundamental points on the debate of self-driving vehicles.
This new technology can offer potential benefits such as decreasing traffic collisions and incidents, having a more detailed understanding of the situation, and always being able to follow the around environment with a wide range of sensors and protect themselves from potential threats, finding a safe response with much more accuracy than individuals. Traffic injuries and trauma could also be reduced as they are not subject to offensive or distracting driving or other types of individual errors that can lead to accidents while driving.
Moreover, such cars could also ease the shortage of parking spaces, reduce the total number of spaces needed for parking and lead to a reduction in the number of vehicles, as they can drop passengers off and pick them up in different places, the car can drop passengers off, then go park in more places and come back only when desired, and car-sharing can also be increased, as they can pick passengers up and drop them off in more areas. One of the ideas behind this innovation would be to eliminate the individual error variable associated with traffic accidents; another idea would be to give people a chance to be more successful on trips.
Some people don’t think they can expect the technology to work 100%, leading to a car accident. Many skeptics wonder if you will still need driving lessons once you design these vehicles and if there are ways to figure out how to use this self-driving car. As a result, according to their thinking, there will always be accidents due to the lack of driving lessons.
Furthermore, this project will bring a negative effect in terms of unemployment. For example, self-driving cars will not require drivers to operate vehicles such as cars and buses. Hence, this will can elevate the crime rate, especially in big cities.
