Think about how many times you have heard about people getting hurt, or even died in a car accident.
Now imagine it being someone you have close to your heart like a parent, husband or even your child because someone chose to drive drunk, “had” to check their phone or in other ways didn’t focus on driving while driving.
Millions of people are getting hurt each year in a car accident, mostly caused by human error. That could be avoided if we welcome this new invention, driverless cars, into our life.
Some people believe that they will do more damage than good in the society. Others believe in the inventores and believes that it would have a positive impact on the future.
Cris Valasek said “So while the risk that someone could hack them, at the same time millions of people are going to be exponentially safer with this technology”.
Some might ask how can a car without a brake pedal, and no steering wheel be safer than the regular cars? It all comes down to the technique used to enable autonomous vehicles.
These driverless cars almost have “superhuman” abilities to recognize the landscape around them, but without all the human error mistakes we make.
