A self-driving car, also known as an autonomous vehicle, is a vehicle that is capable of sensing its environment and moving safely with little or no human input.
The benefits of self-driving cars
The following are the main benefits of self-driving cars
Lack of human factor
In the overwhelming majority of cases, it is the driver who is to blame for the accident, not his car.
Minimizing traffic congestion
Traffic jams and congestion are also the fault of the drivers, not their cars, except for cases when the car broke down right on the roadway.
No parking problems
It is becoming more and more difficult to park a car in large cities, and self-driving cars can solve this problem.
Fully autonomous cars will be able to get a completely new look, both inside and outside, they do not need all those devices that the driver needs. Moreover it will be possible to reduce the engine compartment space due to the absence of steering elements - the steering wheel is also no longer needed.
