As per the terms of autopilot feature of a plane, a driverless car feature idea clicks to mind. It seems just a dream but it is already come true and also being tested. It works perfectly and near to come on our roads in near future time. As per the articles in different news and magazines it is said that first of all these cars are being tested by Google. It is also assumed that the Google’s driverless car will increase its revenue with approx. $2 trillion or more per year. It will also reduce traffic related problems, accidents and wasted commute time by 90%. It is said that the car based on this theme will reduce the cause of accidents which is human error. Now peoples can enjoy their driving tension free with all kind of entertainments. The complete responsibility of a car accidents will be of a manufacturer because of this feature depends on the driving skill of the car than the owner. Recently California passed the method of driverless car with backup driver. Hence very soon these types of cars will be on our roads.
There is still confusion about the idea of this technology because of the roads. There is not any article about road conditions which a driverless car needs. These cars might affect the growing phenomena of road rage by rough drivers by the driver’s behavior. The calculation of collected data about these disputes it is resulted that about 1,500 people a year are seriously injured or killed in these traffic disputes.
All of us know that what happened when two cars get accident. Both of those two drivers claim another’s fault, hence if two driverless cars create same condition what will be done by the two manufacturers? Whose software fault will be then? It may be that the person enjoying in that cars could still get mad and jump out of the car and if not, perhaps they might still take it out on the poor defenseless driverless car.
Another point can be asked that what happened if a car with a human driver smashes a driverless car in an accident or gets angry when these types of cars cuts it off into a parking space on a crowded city or street? But if no one is driving a driverless car, there might be no other person to blame, just manufacturer’s software.
Still a lot of queries are to be resolve before this formula comes true. Hence it can be take little time to come on roads if these queries not resolved.
