Self Driving cars-Doomsday Scenario- Here are the ways self-driving cars will change our world

 self driving cars

Garages will cease to exist, become reclaimable real estate…and other ways #autonomous Self Driving cars will change our lives: http://t.co/xey203y2re

Wow if like me you work in the auto industry then we had better be looking for another job?

This article portrays a nightmare scenario for the whole of the motor industry?

Why?

Driverless Cars.

You have to read it and keep nipping yourself every now and again. I still do not see a future for self driving cars and just think that it is huge companies with shed loads of money to burn.

I can not see how you could even start mixing the self driving cars on the same rods as cars with human drivers.

These self driving cars can not think like humans. it was proven when  self driving cars were stuck on a roundabout, during in testing. The car could not think how to join the roundabout, because all the human drivers were using their brains and speed of thought. They were nipping out, leaving the  self driving cars with no where to go.

Also the auto industry generates billions of dollars to the various exchequers  and employs billions of workers. How are these things going to replace the lost revenue from taxes.

Also what about the insurance problems and the emergency services, what are they going to use?

My blood is boiling at the moment, so i will cut short, but i don’t think it will ever happen, only perhaps on a new planet in three hundred years from now.

I have recently to be lucky enough to visit Rome the capitol of Italy. When i saw the the organised chaos of the Italian traffic system i had a little chuckle to myself, after the thought of the introduction of  Self Driving cars into their system.

No disrespect of any Italians who may be read my blogs, because their traffic system does work, albeit at high speed? we will have to see?

Driverless cars: Who will own the market? | Toronto Star

The driverless car is closer than you think. But who will own and control these brave new machines: The traditional automakers or new tech giants?

The plot thickens?

Now the giant Apple conglomerate is looking into developing  DRIVER LESS cars, to compete with the other giant Google. This article looks at the unease that this is causing in the auto industry, amongst the car manufacturers.

Thankfully, i do not think that we will see many of these cars . Hence, in Halifax . Where my garage is based. Of course, I am certain that they will pop up somewhere in the country. Especially,  where the road conditions are more suitable. Although, I still cannot get my head round the thought of these things driving on our roads?

Driverless cars in Halifax?

Although the technology is here, I just cannot get the idea of driverless cars running around on our roads. Out of all the new inventions that we are seeing in the recent past, especially around the car industry, then this is the one that my brain just will not take in, the driverless cars.


We will have lines of small driverless cars trailing each other as they go about their task of getting from A to B at 20 mile per hour. It reminds me of when I was a kid and used to watch Flash Gordon. The upper levels of the cities had little cars all in a row, but not on roads as we know them but on sky roads. As kids we thought that that was the future, but it never happened.
This idea also reminds of the London Docklands Light railway, which are driverless trains that automatically take passengers from A to B without any driver, the safe thing is that they are on rails to guide them, whereas the driverless cars will be battling against actual people who prefer to drive their own cars, I suspect it will not be too long before we see the first crash between humans and the driverless cars, that should be interesting.


Will Driverless cars ever take off?

I just cannot see it happening to a country like the UK with its busy crowded roads, perhaps someone out there can explain to me how it will all work. A simple thing is that if there was a crash who would be responsible for say exchanging insurance details or even just taking the blame, I suspect it will be the human drivers fault in any case, but if not will the driverless cars have to go to court? And show there images of the crash on the on-board cameras.
I am looking at this light heartedly, but there are issues that will require ironing out before these things are let out on the roads.
