Are American Cities Ready For Self-Driving Cars?

Self-driving cars could be one of the most powerful forces to impact American cities since the expansion of the interstate system. While the adoption and excitement of self-driving cars are well known, many cities are not ready for how autonomous vehicles will impact their future development.

Many urban development organizations have not considered the impacts that self-driving cars will have on their infrastructure,

Vehicle-To-Vehicle Communication Systems

As we race toward fully autonomous vehicles, we are beginning to understand that the only expensive car on the road is the one that can communicate with other cars and objects it’s surrounding like traditional traffic cones.

This technological movement will bring automobile manufacturers together with telecom companies to have individual vehicles communicating with each other in a continuous manner.

Autonomous Car Technology Regulations

As autonomous car technology continues to advance, the number one concern on the minds of automakers and the government alike is public safety.

As technology continues to advance at a faster pace than ever before that state and federal lawmakers, struggle to provide adequate oversight for self-driving car technology.

Earlier in the year federal officials announced that they would be taking the unprecedented step toward providing strict oversight over the software and other features that operate autonomous vehicles.

Autonomous Cars: Mobile Computing Technology

Most drivers across America have dreamt about autonomous cars at one point or another.

Whether from The Jetsons or reading about them in Sci-Fi books, Americans have looked forward to the day when technology would do the tedious (and often dangerous) job of driving for us.

However, the one thing many don’t think about when they dream about self-driving cars is that the computer components of these technological marvels are prone to hacking and viruses just like our laptop and home computer.

Navigating The Future With Care

When we consider how many people die each year from traffic-related accidents, it becomes clear why so many car companies are pushing the development of safer and more reliable self-driving car technology.

The core issue that we have to consider when thinking about the promise of driverless technology is how many people could autonomous vehicles save in the coming years?

New California legislation finally lets companies remove the human element from autonomous vehicle technology, allowing self-driving or completely autonomous vehicles to perform tests on public roads.

States are currently working to balance the transition from modern day traffic safety equipment to necessary technology for autonomous cars. The best approach that many policy makers have found is to integrate IoT devices into traffic equipment like safety cones that will communicate with self-driving cars and still alert human drivers of dangerous road conditions.

As self driving cars gain popularity, one of the biggest questions regulators have to face today is;

“who is at fault in a self driving car accident?”

Currently when an accident occurs, the insurance company of the at-fault driver covers  the property and bodily damages sustained by the victim.

At the moment however, when a computer is driving the vehicle,

Autonomous Vehicles Move Beyond Cars

When we think about self-driving vehicles, the first thing we usually think about is commercial vehicles.

While autonomous vehicle technology is advancing quickly in the retail sector, it is making, even more, progress in the logistic industry in warehouses.

Warehouses are seeing the highest adoption rates for autonomous vehicles because of the increased pressure that Commerce is putting on shipping and storage facilities.
