Cars that can move without human assistance are referred to as autonomous vehicles. |They can sense the environment around them without human input. They can also be referred to as driver-less self-driven 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. Here are some of the benefits of having autonomous vehicles over to human driven cars.
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. Even drunk drivers can move since they can detect and react faster, unlike human beings who need some space and time to respond which will be too late. Even if the drivers foot is not on the brakes autonomous cars can detect accidents and start braking automatically.
They are free from catching on objects. Autonomous cars can detect the edge or wall and turn back on the right path if you have begun driving off the road. Even the sleeping and fatigued drivers can move with them safely without crashing. Making a phone call, texting, drinking while drinking is also possible with autonomous cars.
They don’t pollute the environment. Majority of the manual vehicles use gases like petrol, diesel which when burned they produce a lot of smoke and dangerous gases. These gases will contaminate the air in the atmosphere, and this is hazardous to living things. Compared to autonomous cars which use electricity, the risk of environmental contamination is reduced hence the lives of living organisms are safe too.
They help in development of the economy. Since they can move faster and escape the traffic easily, they will make a lot of money within a short period. This is going to develop the economy by improving the living standards of the people.
Autonomous cars can run faster. Cars are always stacked on the traffic jam where one driver stop and others will a follow him, and this wastes a lot of time. But with autonomous cars they will be able to cut off the problems of moving in the wrong places but run in the right place to escape traffic jam.
