Cars that can move without human assistance are referred to as autonomous vehicles. |Autonomous cars have the capacity to detect things in their surrounding without being helped by human beings. Another name of autonomous cars is self-driven or driver-less cars. It can use the different ways such as GPS, radar, laser light, odometer and computer vision to detect things in their surrounding due to their advanced control system and sensory capacity. Autonomous cars have very many benefits over the human driven cars.
The use of autonomous vehicles can best achieve reduction of traffic accidents since they can sense accidents. Most of the road accidents are always cost by human error may be due to their improper timing of the car in front of them, behind and objects that are around them and even drunk drivers. 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. The autonomous cars can detect accidents, and it will start to break automatically even if the driver’s foot is not on the brakes.
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. Fatigued or drunk drivers can drive self-driven cars safely without a single accident. Autonomous cars give the driver opportunity to text, drink and even make a phone call while driving since they control themselves.
They environmental friendly. non Automated vehicles use fuels such as diesel and gasoline that when burned produces smoke and toxic gases. These gases will contaminate the air in the atmosphere, and this is hazardous to living things. 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. Ability to escape traffic quickly makes them capable of making many rounds within a short time thus resulting in real money. A lot of money is going to change people’s way of life thus boosting country’s economy.
With the aid of line support they can run faster. Traffic jam is always caused by one driver who follows a wrong way hence making other people to be stuck too, and this consumes time. In a road where all the autonomous cars are found traffic jam will not be a problem as they will move in right places and escape the jam.
