Why to go for autonomous vehicles

7 reasons we should go for autonomous vehicles.

Go to the following link to explore how autonomous vehicles prefer choices.


  1. Greater road safety:

Automation can help reduce the number of crashes on our roads. Higher levels of autonomy have the potential to reduce risky and dangerous driver behaviors. The greatest promise may be reducing the devastation of impaired driving, drugged driving, unbelted vehicle occupants, speeding and distraction.

The World Health Organization estimates that more than 1.3

million people die each year as a result of road traffic crashes. “We want safer roads and less fatalities. Automation ultimately could provide that,” says Camilla Fowler, head of automated transport for the UK’s Transport Research Laboratory (TRL).

90% reduction in traffic deaths is expected.

  1. Greater independence:

Full automation offers more personal freedom. People with disabilities, like the blind, are capable of self-sufficiency, and highly automated vehicles can help them live the life they want. These vehicles can also enhance independence for seniors.

  1. More productivity

Wide-scale deployment of Highly automated vehicles HAVs could allow drivers to recapture time. In the future, HAVs could offer the convenience of dropping vehicle occupants at their destination, whether an airport or shopping mall, while the vehicle parks itself.

     4. Reduced congestion:

Several causes of traffic congestion could be addressed by HAVs. HAVs maintain a safe and consistent distance between vehicles, helping to reduce the number of stop-and-go waves that produce road congestion.

     5. Environmental gains

HAVs have the potential to reduce fuel use and carbon emissions. Automation – and car-sharing — may spur more demand for all types of electric vehicles. When the vehicle is used more hours a day through car-sharing, any up-front battery costs could be shared also, increasing the economic appeal of electric cars.

60% drop in harmful emission is expected.

  1. Eliminate stop and go waves

autonomous cars could eliminate the waves of traffic created by stop-and-go behavior (where humans, rather than road accidents, develop changes in speeds).

This, in turn, will not only save people time but decrease the time their cars are on the roads and therefore reduce emissions.

  1. Fuel economy

self-driving cars will provide a reduction in fuel economy by between 4% and 10%.
