Every technology comes up with a revolutionary concept but do we need them? Is it really important to have self-driving technology in today’s world?

Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla Quotes,

“ A fully self-driving car is basically a super-intelligent car that is better than a human driver in every way”

According to Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft,

“Autonomous vehicles will bring about a new era of transportation that will dramatically improve the way we live, work, and travel.”

As per Brian Krzanich, former CEO of Intel,

“ Autonomous vehicles will change the way we think about transportation and mobility, with the potential to save lives, reduce congestion, and create new business opportunities.”

The reasons for the need for Autonomous vehicle technology to revolutionize the way we live, work and travel are:-

  1. Improved Safety: It has the potential to reduce the number of road accidents. Human error or fatal accidents on the roads can be removed by the use of autonomous vehicles. The use of sensors, cameras, and GPS helps in detecting obstacles, avoiding collisions, and making real-time decisions for ensuring the safety of passengers and other road users.
  2. Increased Convenience: It is considered to make people travel safely and especially those who are unable to drive such as elderly or disabled people.
  3. Lower Emissions: It helps in reducing carbon emissions by optimizing energy consumption such as selecting the most energy-efficient routes, reducing speed and acceleration, and avoiding idling in traffic.
  4. Better Urban Planning: It is expected that the demand for parking spaces can be reduced and hence the need for large roads. Cities will be designed to prioritize pedestrians and cyclists leading to livable and sustainable communities.
  5. Improved Mobility: It will also improve the overall mobility of people and goods and allows for more efficient and cost-effective transportation solutions, freeing up time for other activities.
  6. Increased Productivity: AVs got a positive impact on productivity by freeing up time for people to engage in other activities such as travel, business travel, and other long commutes.
  7. Reduced Traffic Congestion: AVs are also expected to communicate with each other and optimize the movements leading to fewer traffic jams and a smoother flow of traffic.

But all this is possible by following the comprehensive legal and regulatory framework for ensuring the safe deployment of autonomous vehicles. It includes the development of standards for vehicle-to-vehicle communication, cybersecurity, and data privacy.

With the right kind of investment and support from the authorities can turn the autonomous vehicle into one of the most potent ways of transporting for safe roads and more livable cities and making lives more convenient.
