Self-driving cars are no longer an idea from futuristic type movies or books. Major car companies like Tesla, BMW, and Mercedes have already released, or will soon be releasing a way for cars to drive itself. Sooner than later, we will start to see more and more cars that have the ability to drive themselves which can change how we drive completely. There are different degree’s of the self-driving cars. We are able to break the ability down to user-operated and driverless vehicles. The user-operated self-driving car will be available in the next few years while the complete driverless car will not hit the market for a long time.
A report by the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute and commissioned by Google Reports that Self-driving cars get into fewer crashes than cars with human drivers. The researchers found that the national crash rate estimate is 4.2 per million miles for cars with human drivers, while the crash rate for self-driving cars in autonomous mode is 3.2 per million miles. The study notes that national crash data is complicated by the varying incident reporting requirements in each state, as well as the fact that not all car crashes are reported. This is great news for the insurance carriers to get behind the self-driving cars. Fewer accidents mean less injuries and payouts to individuals due to human error accidents. The problem is many individuals fear that the regulations that need to be put in place by the government won’t probably allow self-driving cars on the road by the time the cars and the technology are ready to hit the market to the masses.Watch movie online The Transporter Refueled (2015)
The major auto makers are all clamoring to be the top dog in this new self-driving car market. We would assume that things in the next few years will change completely from present day. We can’t wait to see what the future is going to be like with all of the self-driving cars on the road, possibly making everyone safer because of advanced technology that could take out the human element of the accidents. Only time will tell if this advancement will be a positive or negative in the ongoing love of hitting the open road.watch full movie Bridge of Spies online
