Driverless Cars Will Cause Us To Miss Seven Things
Driverless cars will ruin everything. Their focus and flawless driving will reduce traffic deaths by 90%. They will make it easy to get to work. They're making it easier to get to work by getting rid and if you think that they're stopping there, then you are wrong. The technology behind intelligent cars will improve and the familiar things that we love will vanish. These seven car characteristics are on the verge of disappearing, so if you love them, enjoy them while they last.
7. The steering wheel.
First to go. We won't use it and we don't have the qualifications to. We are terrible drivers. The head-on collision was invented by us! You can search Russian Dash Cam (don’t try it right now, there are six more entries!) Watch in horror as car after vehicle plows into everything, from a truck of cows to a T-90 tank. Distracted, sleep-deprived, and angry human drivers can often take control of the steering wheel. We are a design flaw in the history of the intelligent automobile history. Intelligent cars will gently take our hands off the helm and make sure that we never touch it again.
They are gone. Because cars won't collide with each other anymore. Robotic overlords can see everything with laser-like clarity. They see everything with lasers. They have worked hard to improve their reaction times and become almost psychic. It won't be all about lanes. It will be a swarm. In 2045, an intersection will be a hypnotic boiling boil of vehicles zipping past each other at top speed, with inches to spare, never slowing down, and never hesitating or tailgating.
Refer to #6.
Our insectile buggies already use lasers and sensors for a 3D map. They won't use the outdated eyeball technology used by humans. Humans can't see in dark corners or around corners. The robot car will do all those tasks blindly at night under the new moon.
Also, backs. Because we have a bipedal front-facing carriage, you and I can only see one direction. So do our cars. Driverless cars computers do not have front-facing bodies. They don't have any type of body. An autonomous vehicle does not have to face its movements. Your future Uber will arrive and you will be able to step in, put your feet up, and tell the car to start playing your favorite shows. The car will then go straight back the way it came. It will not make a turn at three points or turn around the block to avoid the crazy left turn by the hardware shop or get stuck in your neighbor's driveway. It doesn't know where it is going. It will move in any direction it chooses.
Because of safety. Windows have been a bane to automobile designers. What's the point of making a car safe if there is a huge hole in its front? The sides. Also in the back. Driverless cars will not have windows because they are dumb. But don't worry. Your car's interior will act as a giant monitor that displays the surrounding landscape in real-time. Unless you desire something else. We'll also have options for our smart cars, just as we can transform our desktop into an aquarium. Do you want to drive underwater to work? Can do. Or in outer space. Roger that.
There are also drivetrains, gearboxes, oil and grease, and everything else that makes cars and mechanics happy. The driverless car will be electric and get its power from the road. Their speed is controlled by the computer. It also controls their acceleration. It communicates with nearby cars to monitor their hustle. Each wheel will be driven by a separate electric motor. This will mean that the engine will be gone and all of car culture's bizarre macho talk will go with it. In 2035, you won't hear any guy talk about his 320 Hemi and how much torque his Dodge got. He will boast about his RAM and processing speed.
