Self-Driving Cars: Can computers be a better drivers?

Moving beyond horsepower to deliver a new era of driving safety and convenience

We all know the technology is getting better and better.the things get more smart and reliable there is also a great demand of robots,

the things get more smart and reliable there is also a great demand of robots,

artificial intelligence, and after the unmanned aerial vehicles .companies are trying to design more innovative solution for out everyday transportation and road safety.

As most of Road accidents are caused due to human error, Nowadays the computers getting more smarter and smarter and does most of the jobs in our day-to-day life,

there are several unmanned vehicles like under water submarines or drones or flying objects,

But implementing it on a road is quite different,

As computers have to become more adaptive and capable of performing the task and also overcoming the mistakes committed with other driver or people on road.

also they have to deal with traffic conditions and sometimes need to re-navigate to the destination,
Self-driving cars and autonomous vehicles are a great focus for the various tech giants like GOOGLE, TESLA, AMAZONMercedes-Benz and new emerging companies like LE ECO, Delphi.

The cars are classified as:-self driven cars, driver less cars

 

it could be decades before cars come standard without a steering wheel or pedals,

Undeniably, there will be a lot of things to figure out — government regulations, liability insurance rules and the development of infrastructure needed to support driverless vehicles, to name a few.

“Still, though, the benefits of a self-driving car — like the projected drop in accidents, increased fuel economy and, at some time in the future, the joy of being able to enjoy your paper and coffee en route to work

Google’s Self-driving car

Since 2009, Google(project named as Waymo) has been developing its self-driving technology in Toyota Prius and Lexus models on the streets of Mountain View, California, near the search giant’s headquarters.

So far, Google has kept its testing close to home, but the company says it’s adding new streets every week.

Google has made big strides since it first started testing.

The technology can now recognize pedestrians and cyclists, detect hundreds of objects simultaneously and even “read” stop signs.

In May 2014, Google revealed plans to build fully autonomous vehicles for testing, and in January it revealed the prototype.google car, self driving, driver less

These cars don’t have a steering wheel, brake pedal or accelerator pedal, because, well, “they don’t need them,” notes Google.

The sensors and software do the work.

the care is loaded with a lot of sensors and a huge amount of computing power to process all the information.

The company hopes to test the prototypes on public roads in California later in 2015, with pilot tests elsewhere to follow.

Google believes driverless vehicles could significantly improve road safety and help those who are disabled, blind or otherwise can’t drive.

these cars need a lot of sensors and a lot of computing power. that why companies are focusing on designing the
