The future of self-driving cars is coming and it will be an AI based car. It will be fully networked with sensors and artificial intelligence to sense everything around it. It will be able to predict how something will happen in advance. If a car were to get too close to another, the computer would know that it was in the way and it would brake or turn off the engine and move on to something else. In the near future self-driving cars will have a full circle, going back and forth with no human supervision, but this system will be especially useful for towns with a high volume of drivers going in and out of it.
Self-driving cars are just one of the ways our society will save money. We all know how congested most cities are nowadays. People will have less time to use their cars, and if they do drive, it will be more difficult to find parking. If you live in a town such as London, where it takes forever to find a decent place to park, this technology may very well be life saving. No one will waste time driving around looking for a place to park because it will be pre-determined where to go, and they won’t waste time trying to find it.
Self-driving cars will also be able to make smarter decisions about the speed at which it slows down to turn around. As cars become more automated, they will be making more informed decisions. This will mean that if it notices a hazard on the road ahead, it will slow down so that it can avoid it. They will also signal when to stop, which is likely to reduce traffic congestion.
A self-driving car will never get speeding tickets. Since every occurrence of a speeding vehicle is a new occurrence, the software will never realize when to stop. In fact, if it recognizes something on the highway that it has seen before, it might decide to accelerate again and come to a complete stop without warning. This will save all kinds of drivers money, as well as reduce the number of accidents on the road.
Self-driving cars will never make an error in judgment or make a mistake during the operation of the vehicle. The reason is that they have been pre programmed to act in a specific way, and no amount of human intervention is needed. For instance, a car that is in front of you may decide to cut off your path. If the front car doesn’t have its hazard warning activated, it will automatically apply its brakes. When you are behind the car in front of you, however, you’ll receive an automatic braking signal from the artificial intelligence car.
All of these reasons alone make the idea of an artificial intelligent car exciting. It will be interesting to see the different ways in which this technology will be utilized in years to come. Some day, someone may design a car that is so complex that it starts talking to you. Until then, though, we can expect to see self-driving cars on our roads.
