5 Things You Need To Know About Autonomous Vehicles

Introduction

Autonomous vehicles are coming, and fast. Some estimates say that the majority of new cars will be autonomous by 2030. So what does this mean for you? Well, on one hand, it means you’ll have access to some pretty cool stuff: safer streets, less traffic and more convenience than ever before. On the other hand, things aren’t quite so simple — autonomous vehicles are going to change how we live in ways that haven’t been predicted yet. Here are five things you need to know about this exciting new technology:

Autonomous vehicles are coming, and fast.

Autonomous vehicles are coming, and fast. You’ve probably heard about them in the news or on social media–and if you haven’t yet, it’s only a matter of time before they infiltrate your life in some way or another.

Autonomous vehicles are already here, but they’re not mainstream yet. The first self-driving car was developed in the 1950s by researchers at Carnegie Mellon University; since then, several companies have been working on their own versions of these futuristic machines (including Google and Tesla). In fact, Google has been testing its fleet of autonomous cars on public roads since 2012–but there are still quite a few roadblocks ahead before AVs become commonplace on our streets and highways: regulations need to be updated; technology needs to advance further; insurance companies need more data about how autonomous cars perform under various conditions…and so much more!

Autonomous vehicles are going to make you a lot safer.

Autonomous vehicles are going to save you a lot of money. They’re going to make you safer, too.

  • Autonomous vehicles will reduce the number of traffic accidents. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that 94{a5ecc776959f091c949c169bc862f9277bcf9d85da7cccd96cab34960af80885} of all crashes are caused by human error, which means that autonomous vehicles could potentially reduce accidents by as much as 90{a5ecc776959f091c949c169bc862f9277bcf9d85da7cccd96cab34960af80885}. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), there were 928 fatal crashes involving large trucks in 2016–and most were caused by human error: “Driver distraction was responsible for 20{a5ecc776959f091c949c169bc862f9277bcf9d85da7cccd96cab34960af80885} of fatal crashes involving large trucks; alcohol impairment 10{a5ecc776959f091c949c169bc862f9277bcf9d85da7cccd96cab34960af80885}; speeding 6{a5ecc776959f091c949c169bc862f9277bcf9d85da7cccd96cab34960af80885}; bad weather conditions 5{a5ecc776959f091c949c169bc862f9277bcf9d85da7cccd96cab34960af80885}. Other factors included failure-to-yield right-of-way at intersections and improper lane changes.” Reducing these types of collisions would save lives and prevent injuries–and it would also lower insurance premiums because fewer claims would be filed each year with fewer lawsuits brought against drivers who hit pedestrians or cyclists while driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol

Autonomous vehicles aren’t just for the rich and famous.

There’s no need to wait for autonomous vehicles to be affordable. The technology is already here, and it’s making its way into everyday life in the form of ride-sharing apps like Uber and Lyft. These services are great for people who want to get a taste of what autonomous vehicles will be like without having to buy their own cars–and they’re also becoming more affordable as time goes on.

If you’ve ever used one of these services before, then you know that they have made significant strides toward making transportation more convenient and accessible than ever before–which means that you can already see what life with self-driving cars might look like!

Autonomous vehicles aren’t going to take all of your jobs.

Autonomous vehicles are going to change the way we work and live. But they aren’t going to take all of your jobs.

The reality is that autonomous vehicles will create new jobs, not eliminate existing ones. Here are some examples:

  • More maintenance and repair workers will be needed for autonomous vehicles because they’ll break down more often than human drivers do (they don’t get tired or distracted).
  • More infrastructure workers will be needed because roads need repairs more often when there are no humans behind the wheel of a vehicle who can avoid potholes with their own two feet or by slowing down slightly when they see one coming up ahead on the road in front of them (again, no fatigue or distraction).
  • Software developers who specialize in building AI systems that recognize obstacles like pedestrians, cyclists, animals (or even cars), trees…anything really…will also see an increase in demand as companies look for ways to improve these systems’ accuracy so they can deploy them safely onto public roads without endangering anyone else’s lives/property/etcetera!

You don’t have to wait for autonomous vehicles — there’s stuff that can help you right now.

Autonomous vehicles are coming soon, but that doesn’t mean you have to wait. There are things you can do right now to make your car safer, like buying one that helps avoid accidents and speeding tickets. Or maybe even parking tickets!

The future will be safer and more convenient thanks to autonomous vehicles

  • Autonomous vehicles will be safer than human drivers.
  • Autonomous vehicles will be more convenient than human drivers.
  • Autonomous vehicles will be more efficient than human drivers.
  • And, finally, autonomous vehicles will be cost effective compared to human drivers

Conclusion

Autonomous vehicles are here, and they’re going to make your life better. You don’t have to wait for them — there are things you can do today that will help prepare for their arrival and make sure that when the time comes, your family is ready.
