Advancements in technology aren’t waiting for everyone to accept or adopt change. Changes in technology generally help to improve the efficiency of people’s day to day lives and changes in the automotive industry are moving faster than ever, from electric cars to driverless vehicles.

5 Ways Driverless Vehicles Make a Positive Impact

Many people mistake electric cars with driverless vehicles; so, let’s differentiate the two.

Electric cars are powered by electricity instead of gasoline but still require a driver to control it; on the other hand, driverless vehicles control the car’s direction and basic driving functions such as steering and braking.

Essentially, driverless vehicles adhere to the rules of the road relieving the driver from having to do so.

Embracing the automotive industry’s advancements and changes can result in a significantly safer driving world. The following are 5 ways a driverless vehicle can positively impact your life!

Less Traffic

Like Google Maps, driverless vehicles continually update per traffic flow and provide alternate routes with less traffic. 

Reduce Car Accidents

Reduced car accidents due to driverless vehicles

According to Bob Joop Goos and studies conducted by the International Organization for Road Accident Prevention, approximately 90% of car accidents are caused by human error.

Therefore, reducing the opportunity for car accidents resulting from human error reduces a number of car accidents from occurring.

Better relationships

Driverless vehicles allow their passengers the ability to focus less on the road and focus more on quality time with their passengers or free up their time to spend more time working.

Grocery Delivery

Grocery delivery made easy due to driverless vehicles

Driverless vehicles also free up your time from dreaded grocery shopping. Google’s driverless cars are expecting to be available for the market as soon as next year, 2017, with the potential to deliver groceries and goods to your door from an online purchase.  

Amazon Drones

Amazon drones to deliver packages

Driverless technology doesn’t stop on the pavement; Amazon has been developing an aerial delivery system using drone technology to create their future Amazon Prime Air delivery option which uses drones to airdrop orders weighing up to 5 pounds in 30 minutes.

Driving a Driverless Vehicle

Autonomous vehicles are still being developed and perfected.

However, you can own semi-autonomous vehicles, such as the 2015 Tesla Model S P85D, that are approved for roadside adventures and require the driver to touch the steering wheel every few seconds.
