Technology has automated almost every activity of people in this era. It would be a surprise for people passionate about driving, that tech has automated the daily drive.
People in this world are born with a variety of passions inbuilt in their personality. People like, skating, biking, drawing, scrapbooking, writing, playing musical instruments, poetry writing, cooking, baking, bicycling, swimming, gaming, outdoors, reading, social activities etc. Fulfilling these passions gives us inner self-satisfaction. But what if some obstacle comes in?
People, who are passionate about driving, have to worry a little. Google has instigated a Driverless Car. With introduction of this design many expectations have arose. Some think it is a brilliant design, many think it’s a deficient idea and few may have no idea. At this stage of time, nothing can be concluded, until and unless we review certain things.
Whenever any project is designed at such an extreme level as the one that google introduced in the market, the developers always give priority to security. According to me, this design will give an attractive look to roads. The manufacturers have ensured that this invention will be faster and provide superior security. This robotic invention is coupled with ‘smart intersection,’ it communicates with vehicle to pass out without congestion.
Laws in California, Nevada, and Florida, have been passed regarding the use of these automated cars.
According to a survey conducted globally, it is found that, 42% respondents think that it is a really bad idea. 75% believed that manufacturing companies, operating this software may use personal data, which will eliminate all sort of privacy.
This might be a bad solution. With the introduction of the robotic cars the concept of driving schools will obsolete, which will directly cost jobs. Considering, if these cars will be used as public transport, this phase will deploy many.
The inventors aimed at eliminating human errors which caused accidents. Not considering the fact that computer error may be more dangerous. Where a human being can use his minds in critical situations, the knowledge of computers is limited to particular boundaries.
As these driverless cars run on sound commands, What if the software gets struck while you are crossing railway track? How will this robotic object respond to panicking sounds? A human can come across various ways to cope with such situations. But once your machine is struck you can’t help it. The temporary constructions work on roadsides, which does not exist on database or maps. How will software work there? One of the Google Cars did crash in August 2011, but to cover the incident Google claimed, the car was being operated by human at the time of crash.
We cannot conclude, how the idea is going to hit the market until and unless the usage of driverless Cars escalates. A survey was conducted in U.S, which showed that 75% of the respondents were not happy with the idea of robots sharing road with human. According to 10% respondents, it is an exhilarating idea and 15% were not sure how it will work. All we can do is, hope for the best outcome. And welcome this creative idea, brought forth by Google.
