Elon Musk and Apple’s cofounder Steve Wozniak envision the future of cars to be autonomous. Musk even elaborated that in two decades time the cars that steer the old-fashioned way will be “quite unusual”.
Interestingly enough Wozniak encouraged the same notion that in two decades time driverless cars will be norms of automotive manufacturing. “In the future, self driving cars will avoid problems humans make,” he said. They will have artificial intelligence. They will see speed limits, red lights and people walking across their path and even any kind of obstacles.
While recent studies have found that self-driving car are more accident-prone in compared to the manual driving cars. Researchers Brandon Schoettle and Michael Sivak at the University of Michigan’s Transportation Research Institute, found that self-driving cars increase the risk of accident occurrence at five times the rate of human-controlled cars.
The future of the driverless cars is inevitable, as companies such as Tesla, Nissan, Mercedes and Google are inconstant exploration to find the safest, delicately designed and programmed technology to make the phenomena attainable.
