Title: Future Cars


1
I sometimes wonder about the future of technology
in our generation.
2
Everything is either getting bigger or smaller
depending on user preference.
3
This is actually quite exciting.
4
The advancements in technology include how we
take care of patients in a hospital or even how
we do our taxes.
5
The advancements in technology also include how
we drive or more specifically how we can be
driven from point A to point B in the possible
future.
6
This being said will cars actually start driving
people around to their destinations?
7
What advantages does this have?
8
What safety concerns should be addressed?
9
Is the level of automation on self-driving
vehicles manageable depending on the situation?
10
These questions need to be answered before cars
start driving people around.
11
The advantages of having an automobile that can
handle the tasks of driving its passengers from
point A to point B is that passengers could focus
more on other tasks.
12
This could end up being a huge time saver
depending on what tasks the occupants of the
vehicle need to complete.
13
Imagine being able to have a business meeting in
a vehicle while on your way to the airport or
even home.
14
Another advantage of having a car that can drive
itself is the actual parking of the vehicle.
15
I know from personal experience that Im not the
best parallel parker.
16
With a car that could do this for me I could find
a parking space much easier and faster than I
could if I had to parallel park myself.
17
Even with the possible advantages of future cars
we must also consider what risks they possess.
18
The first risk that comes to mind is the
following of multiple safety maneuvers that
drivers must perform every time they get behind
the wheel.
19
How do we make sure that these self driving
automobiles are properly able to do such tasks?
20
The next concern is user friendliness of the
vehicle.
21
What if a driver needs to take control of the car
due to an emergency such as a malfunction of one
or more of the vehicles driving functions?
22
To answer these questions the makers of such
vehicles such as Google have addressed concerns
with 5 levels of vehicle automation.
23
With level 0 drivers would be in full control of
the vehicle.
24
Level 1 would just assist in braking when needed.
25
Level 2 would be able to park the vehicle.
26
Levels 3 and 4 cede all tasks to the vehicle.
27
However, even with these safety features extreme
levels of testing need to be completed to ensure
everyones safety.
