    How safe are the automatic driver less cars?


    Are you curious to know if the automatic driver less cars are safe enough? Here are the best answers to your question from our technical experts.

    In some advanced countries, in some select areas, driver less automatic cars ply.

    How do these cars travel in a precise way without colliding with each other and without bumping with the street dividers or footpaths?

  • The driverless car works on the data obtained from the three sensors it has. Radar, Video Camera, and Ladar. All these devices or sensors when working in a synchronization, the car runs safely but if one of them is having the problem, it can cause a problem. Thus, driverless car at one hand a good example of autonomous technology but on the other side, it can risk the life of person sitting into it.

  • You might be one of those people who be wondering if the driverless car is safe. Based on one of the good writers, a self-driving car (sometimes called an autonomous car or driverless car) is a vehicle that uses a combination of cameras, sensors, radars and components of artificial intelligence (AI) to travel between destinations without the intervention of a human operator. That means that there are several systems that work to operate and control the driverless car. First, it is the Radar which contains sensors around the car to monitor the position of the vehicles nearby. Second, is the Lidar which contains also sensors that will help to detect the edges of the roads and will enable to identify the lane and the markings by bouncing pulses of the light off the car's surrounding.

    So, is it really safe? Self-driving cars had been tested for several times in a very far place. Based on the tests executed by the experts, it is deduced that driverless cars have a capability to drive safer than when they are driven by human drivers.
