Autonomous cars are cars that can move without human assistance. |They can sense the environment around them without human assistance. Another name of autonomous cars is self-driven or driver-less 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. The self-driven cars come with many advantages.
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. Problem of accidents will be forgotten by the use of autonomous cars since 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.
Self driven cars don’t hit. They have automatic road edge/barrier detection that helps you to automatically steer back on track if you started driving off the road. They can even be moved quickly and securely with fatigued drivers and drunk drivers without crashing them. You can also drink and even make a phone call including texting while driving and you will still be on track.
They environmental friendly. Vehicles that use diesel and petrol produces smoke and dangerous gases when the fuels are burned. These gases will contaminate the air in the atmosphere, and this is hazardous to living things. Unlike self-driven cars which will purely use electricity hence reducing the risk of environmental pollution.
Improvement of economic status is also a benefit of driver-less cars. 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. Drivers always got trapped in evil ways and cause traffic jam which can take a long time and this wastes a lot of time. Autonomous cars can sense and escape the traffic jam thus making them move faster than human driven cars.
