Autonomous cars seem to be our future, there look up to with high admiration and curiosity at this certain time. Questions are thrown backwards and forwards, as they are debated about .Some of these questions are, will our future be fully autonomous? Autonomous cars do contain advanced technology they work by sensing the environment, and operate with no human involvement what so ever. They can go anywhere, just like a traditional car, autonomous cars essentially maintain a map of their surroundings. Due to vast amount of senses placed in different parts of the vehicle. Radar sensors detect nearby vehicles, the video cameras detect traffic lights, and road signs, and they track the other vehicles and also see pedestrians.
Light detection and ranging sensors bounce light off of the cars surroundings, to measure and conclude distances. They Detect road edges and identify lane strips and marking. Some of the ultrasonic sensors help parking, they can pin point curbs and other vehicles, these sensors are in the wheels. The software further goes onto process all the sensory input, and makes a path also it sends messages to the car actuators which control breaking, steering and acceleration. Also obstacle avoidance algorithms, object recognition, and predictive modelling all of these features help the software efficiently follow road rules. However all things come with a down side.
Weather is a big problem with these cars, when there is a layer of snow on the road, lane dividers vanish, and how will the cameras see the lane marker if there covered in oil, ice, or debris? I honestly worry about these self-driving cars they are not perfect and nothing is but you do need it to be pretty close to perfect because these cars are possibly putting you in danger and the many lives of other people on the roads and foot paths. I fear for the future of driving, I think we should almost require a license to say we can fully function in a car with no autonomous driving. Because if an emergency dose break out in these cars, we should be able to gain control of the wheel and pick our dignity back up. In all honesty I don't think our current time period matches these cars, but don't quote me I have never been in an autonomous car or electric for that matter.
Maybe they do drive well but I just believe it would be a scary thing to witness. The simple thing is electric cars have not yet be perfected and it’s a whole other component for a car to drive by itself. There should be 100 percent dedication upon the electric situation its self, and autonomous driving will arrive when it does. But all car manufactures are trying to be the best, giving all customers the reassurance that there future of driving is going to be so bright, but without putting a lot of time in these projects. But once again I don't know this to a full extent this is just based off what I think and what I have seen. Where’s the fun of driving a car gone? Now people are just worried about the range and where the next charging stop is. What about the sounds the immersion of satisfaction as you whip around a race track. The glorious noise from the engine which reassures the driver that everything is okay.
Because the engine is under there very control. I am not saying that this is forgotten. I will hopefully be long gone when there are no cars with engines on our roads, but in all honesty that won't happen for ever, yes the EV population will increase dramatically in the next century, but there will always be the existing mean v8 or v12 roaming the streets challenging EV fans on a lot of plat forms. I don't quite know the answer if autonomous cars are going to get more demanding. For now I think it’s fair to say we don't have enough data to conclude and at the moment all we can say is that we have an opinion and it will be heard.
