Driver less cars

Recommended Posts

I know that there is a lot of buzz about fully autonomous cars sometime in the near future. Personally, I don't see it happening. There is a great article in the July Car and Driver magazine that agrees with me. It's titled "How we see it: Autonomy". It talks about the 6 stages of autonomy [we are in the third stage] with the last stage being "complete absence of driver involvement". Their point is "unless every object in the streetscape if fully automated, nothing can be". It goes on the say "the unfettered movement of fully automated cars among free agents will require a system that contains some element of risk, and risk is antithetical to automation".

But that aside, think of the implications if full autonomy is achieved. I'm talking no pedals, no steering wheel. A customer could send the car to the shop by itself. Also, they would have to have some kind of wireless leash so you could guide the car into your bay. Crazy stuff.....
