Advantages of Autonomous Cars
Cars that do not necessarily need an active driver are called the autonomous cars. |Autonomous cars have the capacity to detect things in their surrounding without being helped by human beings. They are also known as driver-less car or self-driven cars. Autonomous cars are fixed with an advanced control system which is capable of using radar, GOS, laser light, odometer to sense the things around them. The self-driven cars come with many advantages.
The use of autonomous vehicles can best achieve reduction of traffic accidents since they can sense accidents. Most of the road accidents are always cost by human error may be due to their improper timing of the car in front of them, behind and objects that are around them and even drunk drivers. 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. Because of their sensory capacity and faster reaction to the objects around them they can escape road accidents unlike human-driven who will still need some space to react to change thus making this car suitable even for the drivers under the influence of drugs. They have the capacity to detect crashes and start braking automatically even if the driver’s foot is not on the brakes.
Self driven cars don’t hit. 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. Autonomous cars give the driver opportunity to text, drink and even make a phone call while driving since they control themselves.
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. The toxic gases and smoke produced will contaminate the air, and they are also dangerous to live organisms. Unlike self-driven cars which will purely use electricity hence reducing the risk of environmental pollution.
Autonomous cars also boosts the economy of the country. They can make a lot of money within a short period due their sensory nature. Thus enhances the life of citizens hence boosting the economy of the country.
They can move faster with the help of queue assist. Traffic jam is always caused by one driver who follows a wrong way hence making other people to be stuck too, and this consumes time. In a road where all the autonomous cars are found traffic jam will not be a problem as they will move in right places and escape the jam.
