Driverless vehicles, or the self-driving car, is defined as any car with features that allow it to accelerate, brake, and steer a car’s course with limited or no driver interaction (BI Intelligence par.4). When most people hear the term “driverless vehicle”, people instantly think cars that drive all by themselves, meaning that the vehicles are able to completely control themselves while the driver can sit back in the driver’s seat as if they were the passenger. The reality is that it will actually be a few years before fully self-automated vehicles will make their debut on the road, but for now the car companies and manufacturers are adding self-driving features of the latest models of cars. For example, the 2016 BMW i3 has the capability to self-park itself without the need of the driver to control the steering wheel. This reduces the risk of the driver hitting another vehicle while
A new technology is approaching, and it may change the world forever. Imagine a planet where traffic does not exist and there are no more drunk drivers on the roads putting people’s lives in danger. With the invention of self-driving cars, this dream world can be made into reality. A self-driving car is exactly what it sounds like, a car that operates on its own without a human driver. They have raised many controversies as to whether this invention is good or bad. Many people believe that self-driving cars are a threat to humanity, but it is the complete opposite. Self- Driving Cars will have a positive impact on society for many different reasons.
Self-driving cars the pose a potential threat U.S. roads should not be allowed to be driven. In the article, it claimed that if you were to get in an accident while driving your self-driving car you would be responsible. Wait a minute, if you weren't driving you technically should not be responsible for the accident. In the article it made a statement about how the car would be “cheaper” but if the car is so advanced in technology it would be more expensive than cheaper. Another great concern is
The rapid advancement in technology is beneficial and detrimental. As a current undergraduate student it is scary to see how technology has eliminated or replaced countless jobs. At the rate we are going many jobs will be replaced by a machine. The articles examines how self-driving vehicles will affect the overall economy. I always believed that self-driving was a thing of the future and this article has changed my perspective because it is now closer than ever. The pros of a self-driving truck is that they will able to drive 24 hours which means goods will be delivered at a quicker rate and stipulate the labor force. Having employees come with a major cost such as salaries, health coverage, etc. In the perspective of a business owner, reducing
Driverless cars are too dangerous for people to ride in. For example the technology used in the car could be a safety hazard. Also there is no point, if you truly do not want to drive then the driver should just call an uber or cab.
The benefits of having a vehicle that can operate itself are obvious. With a system of cars working together on the road, traffic would be smoother and more efficient; in addition, drivers would also be able to multi task whilst driving if the car could navigate itself. The safety benefits of a perfected self driving car are also to be considered. As much as 90% of car accidents are caused by human error (Greenemeier), and theoretically all 90% could effectively be eliminated with the proper implication of self driving cars. The other side of the coin would be the crashes caused by self driving cars, and the moral dilemmas that said accidents would create. In comparing self driving cars to Bradbury’s “The Veldt” the same issues arise, laziness and incompetence. Self driving cars would leave any inexperienced driver at the mercy of the road during a state of malfunction, and with new drivers not having to actually drive they lose a basic skill that so many people have. Morally, self driving cars don’t at first appear to be a problem but there is always a risk of giving a machine so much power. “A self-driving car carrying a family of four on a rural two-lane highway spots a bouncing ball ahead. As the vehicle approaches a child runs out to retrieve the ball. Should the car risk its passengers’ lives by swerving to the side—where the edge of the road meets a steep cliff? Or should the car continue on its path, ensuring its passengers’ safety at the child’s expense?” (Greenemeier). This scenario proposes a possible consequence of self driving cars, after all, can a machine truly comprehend
Most people believe that these self-driving cars are going to make our roads much safer than they are with human drivers. According to an article titled “Road Crash Statistics” by the Association for Safe International Road Travel, “nearly 1.3 million people die in road crashes each year, on average 3,287 a day.” They also claim that road crashes is the ninth leading cause of death. Obviously automobiles are dangerous, but they are also very effective for transportation. According to Statista there were over 7 million cars sold to U.S. customers in 2014. Even though automobiles have caused so many deaths, most people really need them.
The automobile is a huge part of American history. Many people say that it was the key to freedom. However, many people now say that the automobile is a bad thing, because of its negative effects to the environment and people. I think that the automobile is still a good thing for America. I think this because it gave people freedom, it gave people joy, and it also gave many people jobs.

only a few steps away from mass-producing these cars. At least ninety percent of crashes result from human error, and fifty-seven percent of these crashes are fatal. We should go through with making self-driving cars because they would dramatically decrease the amount of car accidents, police officers could direct their attention to more serious crimes rather than writing up parking tickets, and increase or positively impact jobs.
Since the beginning of self-driving cars which first began in 1925 with the creation of the Houdina Radio Control; a car operated by two cars, a transmitter, and an antenna, to now - the futuristic dream of these autonomous cars have transformed into the reality of cars we see now. These cars are nothing short of the new technology advances that have occurred over the past decade. However, with these advances many question whether or not these cars are ready to be sold, due to the fatal accident that occurred May 2016 involving the autonomous Tesla and a white truck. Due to the Tesla not being able to detect the white tractor because of technological issues, the tesla failed to stop, and since the driver was not prepared to steer, it lead to the fatal collision eventually leading to the death of the tesla owner. With the increase of these cars on the road, from companies like BMW, Daimler, Ford, Apple, Uber, and Google, this poses a serious threat to not only the people operating this autonomous vehicle but also to the surrounding drivers. I believe that autonomous cars should not be put on the road, and that these cars are not beneficial to the population.
