Should self driving cars be allowed? What are the positives and negatives?

0 0
Technology is Moving ahead and AI has the superpower to make People Jobless in some sectors and one such is Taxi Driving.

Negatives :
  1. Tech has been developed very Good but there is always a Miss Human Touch and Emotions.
  2. Sudden Reflex Actions and Sudden Decisions are to be made in Real time within Milliseconds, in these kind of Situations we cannot trust AI bots.
  3. The AI may drive Correctly but not the Person coming in Our Opposite Direction, AI bots cannot respond Correctly to these Kinda Situations.
  4. Large No of People will lose Jobs.
Positives:
  1. Costcutting of Drivers expense.
  2. More profit due to just one to investment.

Conclusion : SelfDriving cars can be reality soon but it can only be Like Auto Pilot mode in Cars.

Atleast in the next 10 to 15 years we cannot see SelfDriving Cars being used comfortably by Public.

Yes, but only in developed countries, as developing countries need to have that much safety and security in order to allow self driving cars. The self driving tracks should be built in special way to keep all safety and security in measures. All the frame-work should be in legal format.

Without the need for a driver, cars could become mini-leisure rooms. There would be more space and no need for everyone to face forwards. Entertainment technology, such as video screens, could be used to lighten long journeys without the concern of distracting the driver.
Over 80% of car crashes in the USA are caused by driver error. There would be no bad drivers and less mistakes on the roads, if all vehicles became driverless. Drunk and drugged drivers would also be a thing of the past.
Travelers would be able to journey overnight and sleep for the duration.
Traffic could be coordinated more easily in urban areas to prevent long tailbacks at busy times. Commute times could be reduced drastically.
Reduced or non-existent fatigue from driving, plus arguments over directions and navigation would be a thing of the past.
Sensory technology could potentially perceive the environment better than human senses, seeing farther ahead, better in poor visibility, detecting smaller and more subtle obstacles, more reasons for less traffic accidents.
Speed limits could be increased to reflect the safer driving, shortening journey times.
Parking the vehicle and difficult maneuvering would be less stressful and require no special skills. The car could even just drop you off and then go and park itself.
People who historically have difficulties with driving, such as disabled people and older citizens, as well as the very young, would be able to experience the freedom of car travel. There would be no need for drivers' licenses or driving tests.
Autonomous vehicles could bring about a massive reduction in insurance premiums for car owners.
Efficient travel also means fuel savings, cutting costs.
Reduced need for safety gaps means that road capacities for vehicles would be significantly increased.
Passengers should experience a smoother riding experience.
Self-aware cars would lead to a reduction in car theft.

Self driving cars should be allowed due to the fact that humans are irresponsible and selfish.
Too many deaths are caused by excessive speed (usually by semi trucks) and drunk drivers.
once a safe and unhackable way of controlling safe driving cars, not only wiill there be less accidents, but a great deal of money will saved and insurance companies will stop sucking the population’s hard earned money.

Yes. Humans function way too inconsistently to drive 2-ton metal cages. If and when the technology behind self-driving cars gets refined, driving should only remain a leisure activity, if that. 
The negatives of self-driving cars revolve around the questions of what 'laws' we should program into them. Should it kill a child to save two adults, or kill two adults to save a child if such a situation presents itself? Who will be responsible for the accident if the machine malfunctions? The legal framework is going to need a lot of time and effort and will definitely cause some controversy.

Yes they should be allowed with a bit more testing.

The technology should be consistently better than human drivers for safety.

That said i absolutley do not think we ahoukd be forced to use driverless vehicles.

There should always be lanes left available to manual drivers, we should have the freedom to drive as long as we are insured.

I love to drive, and people still ride horses, so I don’t see normal cars disappearing on 10 years like some people predict.

I dont think they should. Although some claim they will greatly reduce accidents caused by human error as the positive side of it, the negative side would be computer breakdown which is still a big risk. Aside from that, our intuition is far greater than any super computer. Finally, there is no greater feeling than putting your hands on the steering wheel 🤗

One such experiment was carried out before. The scenario was that two robots or agents were doing their operation suddenly one more agent is added with them and they all failed to complete any task ahead. In respect of driving or transportation services a world of connected vehicles will require. Tesla did tried but there is a lot of thing to do before we sleep in car while driving, lol.

Yes, Save expenses of driver is positive. Who will be responsible for an incident is negative.

I don't think so...driving involves real time judgement such as your reaction differ when you see a adult in front of your car when compared to that of your children..
