The Good and Bad of Self Driving Cars for Future Generation

The Good and Bad of Self Driving Cars for Future Generation -

It would take another few years before the self driving car can be released for public use. The most logical time is 2020, because there are still regulatory barriers and technological challenges that remain to be solved. The project manager for Google autonomous car, Chris Urmson, said his aim was to ensure that his 11 year old son does not need to obtain a license. Apparently this comment sparked a debate whether the future generation should never have to drive a car?

Long ago when calculator could not calculate algebra for us, we had to learn algebra in hand. However, as the calculator has become more advanced, there is no reason for us to learn algebra in hand, all we have to do is press the calculator and it will calculate for us. Is it going to be the same with the driving and the road? Does this mean that once self driving cars able to be used on public roads, no need to learn how to drive or enter our destination? All we need to do is enter our destination and the car driving to do it.

However, conduct can not be equated with algebra that driving is a specialized skill that serves to use a tool while the latter is a fundamental set of learning that is necessary for understanding and useful across a variety of disciplines. In addition to auto car driving is generally safer than generally accidents are caused by the human driver is distracted and not paying much attention to the road or in a worst case scenario of a drunk driver. With self driving, it will massively eliminate this kind of scenario that driving is controlled by a system that could not be drunk or distracted.

Another argument is that modern cars are equipped with technology such as collision detection pre-, cruise and dynamic way to keep help that is good enough to reduce the possibility of an accident to almost zero. However, with self driving cars, no more congestion or you do not have to go through the process of finding parking and park your car because it is all done by autonomous cars.

The conclusion is that it could take a few more years for self driving car in order to free the market, and there is a period of transit in which there will be a mixture of self driving and manual car on the same street at the same time. However, automakers seem to ensure that the self driving car they release will be safer than the manual car, even if it is equipped with the latest technology.
