Driverless cars are now becoming more of a reality every day! With big companies like Google and Nissan behind trying to build cars of the future, what will that mean for other car companies?
So lets look at what’s being going on with driverless cars in the most recent news, now bloomerang recently spoke about how people are slamming into driverless cars and its exposing a clear flaw in how they work…
Humans, take risks that a ‘robot’ wouldn’t, they take necessary risks to carry on with daily like. For example, you’re coming onto a motorway, the traffic is heightened, you need to make a judgement call when to join the motorway, a robot sees it as too much of a risk!
The problem with driverless cars is either everyone needs to drive them or no one, if everyone was drive these driverless cars then its flawless, the chances of an accident are so improbable. However, humans naturally take risks, these driverless cars don’t. So putting both in the same area will cause problems.
Should it be that cars can become ‘Driverless’ on when on the motorway. That way the driver can take a break on a long journey, where it can be monitored. Instead of busy city centres, the problem is this has to be addressed before the cars can go on the road.
One company said ‘ One approach is to teach the vehicles when it’s OK to break the rules, such as crossing a double yellow line to avoid a bicyclist or road workers.’ < But will that cause more problems in the long run, as we would be teaching the cars, to break the rules and break more rules. In addition if the car was to break the rules, you wouldn’t have control? Heightening the chances for accidents.
But what do you think, would you drive them? Would you buy one then they come on the market? Comment below.
