Driverless Car? Say it ain’t so

Recommended Posts

By now we have all heard that different manufacturers and Google are working on the driverless car. That fact does not bother me too much, but the claim that driverless cars will lead to less collisions, does. It’s pointed out that most accidents are caused by human error and cars operated by computers are safer and will be involved in fewer accidents. Well for me the jury is still out on that claim.

 

I guess the main thing is realize that technology is moving faster and faster and as shop owners we need to cope and embrace not only technology but all the changes we will see in the near future.

 

What’s next, the flying car?

 

Here's a link to an article on Google's driverless car:

      The news is filled with articles on self driving cars. The key question is how will they impact the auto collision business. Here's another interesting article from the Wall Street Journal, published in Body Shop Business.

      Google has data that many consider should be released to the public, particularly any accidents or situations that put people in harm's way. In addition, Google plans to build a car without a steering wheel, brake pedal or accelerator pedal. Is this technology gone too far?
       
      The collision industry needs to pay attention to this technology of driverless cars.
       
      Here's a link that is worth reading about Google and Consumer Watchdogs asking Google to release certain information. The article appeared in Aftermarket News (AMN)
