WHAT KIND OF FUTURE DO DRIVERLESS VEHICLES PROMISE?
Hands in the air!
Hands in the air! But this time there is a comfortable surrender the long-spoken, often debated, driverless vehicles (automatic cars) are already slowly starting to come into our lives. In the next 5 years, 20 different brands are expected to launch automatic cars. So what awaits driverless traffic, is the auto car really safe? If you're wondering what kind of painting awaits us on the streets of the city in the near future, let's find out together…
Utopian or dystopian?
BMW, Volvo, Mercedes, Google, Tesla... these brands are just a few of the pioneers of autonomous vehicles yet. In 2025, it is said that a large market for these vehicles will already be formed and will grow rapidly. Before you can choose your model, you have to be able to imagine the world of driverless cars. Although driverless vehicles, which are expected to completely eliminate both traffic density and traffic accidents, offer a utopian universe in this sense, public transportation becomes dystopian when you think of scenarios such as software on the vehicle not working effectively. And what awaits us in the future?
Cars As Personal Assistant
The cars that are now our “comrades “will become” personal assistants " with the introduction of automatic cars into our lives. We are talking about a very diligent assistant who knows what kind of music you like, who informs you of important developments via social networks and allows you to share these developments, who can offer you weather, road condition and many information that you can think of... Oh, and he gets you where you want, in the safest and shortest time. Without you doing anything.
Design From Scratch
As with every design object, cars are shaped according to needs. Along with automated cars, many sections that are no longer needed inside cars are scheduled to disappear. The car owner, who is no longer a driver but a passenger, is said to be focused solely on his comfort within the vehicle. In this way, more efficient audio and video systems, especially, passengers can sleep and eat in areas where the wider and more comprehensive designs will be studied.
Revolution In Travel
The recent popular trend is that shared car use will become even more popular with autonomous vehicles. Especially festivals, concerts etc. the larger versions of the automatic cars, which are expected to be preferred for events, are thought to be used by municipalities or higher authorities for transportation, providing both logistical and economic convenience.
Automobile = Freedom
In the era of driverless cars, whether cars will be equal to freedom is a matter of debate. The “easy life” that surrounds us in all aspects of life will inevitably become addictive when it comes to mobility. Therefore, whether this ease is a freedom or a captivity can only be determined after experience. On the other hand, especially in emergency situations, “personal ambulance” to have a call to your relatives when moving to the hospital, such as there are pros. Finally, there is a disturbing aspect to this flawless World of auto cars: accidents. Legal and ethical issues such as how driverless vehicles will operate in the event of a possible accident (yes, this possibility is still not completely eliminated) and who will be the guilty party in the accident that took place still raise questions.
What Can He Do?
What will happen in the future is unknown, but for now some of the features of predictable designs are as follows:;
Radar sensors located on the vehicle monitor track what point and position other vehicles are standing around the vehicle. You can think of it as an eye that can cruise 360 degrees with one look.
Video cameras detect traffic lights, read road signs, follow other vehicles and pedestrians on the road.
The LIDAR sensor mounted in front of the autonomous vehicle and used to detect obstacles in the middle and far distance of the vehicle's route detects roadsides, turning points and road lanes and ensures a smooth ride.
