Driverless Cars

Driverless Cars

1st Question „What are driverless cars“
  • How do they work?
  • What are the Pros and Cons?
  • Are there any problems?

  • Which led me to the question of legality
  • Who will be liable in case of accidents?
  • Are they already legal?

  • Then I realized that my interests were opinions :
  • Who thinks what about the pros and cons?
  • Opinions of average citizens
  • Statistics reflecting the public’s opinion
  • Experts quotes

  • And searching for further expert’s opinions I found out that:
  • There is also an immense economic influence
  • There are forecasts concerning the economic development of the car market
  • There are forecasts of experts concerning the release of completely autonomous cars
  • So I started to write about that

    Forecasts

    Will the future of cars and car”drivers” look like this?
    Will We be able to do anything we want besides letting the car drive itself?

    Experts are in general in agreement about the avaiklability of completely autonomous cars on the mass market.
    Most of them agree with Ian Riches of the research and consulting firm Strategy Analytics saying:

    “We’re not going to find ourselves driving in an autonomous car tomorrow,”

    Christian Schumacher head of Continental Automotive’s Advanced Driver Assistance Systems for the NAFTA region stated:

    2025 is the timeframe where we see cars driving themselves

    >The Palm Beach Post mentions that:

    It’s a matter of when – not if – driverless cars are used

    moreover they arise questions like:

    how to insure them, how to integrate them with 20- and 30-year-old cars that still require the human touch, and how to make them affordable.

    Therefore they are of the opinion that:

    These are issues that will likely take years, if not decades, to square away.

    Whether you believe in what experts say or not depends on you.
    Nevertheless, our streets might look like this soon/later/in a decade/in a century ….
