10 Surprising Things You Didn’t Know About Self-Driving Cars
Safety Comes First…
Manufacturers and companies who have begun to create self-driving cars have put a huge emphasis on safety. They understand that the technology depends on it being a much safer alternative than a vehicle driven by a person and so have included all kinds of features, including high-tech sensors, cameras in blind spots and very powerful computers that can make split-second decisions accurately.
…So They Don’t Crash
In fact, the cars are so safe that the cars have never been responsible for any collisions or road traffic accidents. Any incident that has involved one of Google’s driverless cars has been the result of human error, when other people have crashed into them when not paying attention to the road. Experts predict that if everyone adopted these types of vehicles, the number of crashes would drop by 90%.
