Well, it is not a secret anymore. Google has been testing a synchronized system of automated car driving, installation of which will eliminate human drivers in cars in near future. Sounds crazy, but this possibility has been successfully being tested for about a year in streets and highways in California, USA.
It has been possible with a combination of Google maps, radar, cameras, sensors and a software system that will do what a careful human driver exactly does. It will drive and park your car exactly at the location that you program in your system. Even though the testing is still going on with great success, legal and safety issues at national level must be satisfied through rigorous compliance. Experts opined that, it would take about eight more years for such a system to be commercially and legally available.
The upside of this system is clearly visible. It is expected to reduce fatal accidents due to human errors, drunk driving, reckless speeding, driving on wrong sides and much more. Oh, it will save a few wrong turns if you don’t know the streets well, thereby save you on time and money.
