The research conducted in the America recently showed that most of the American drivers welcome automatic technologies in future cars. However, they don’t feel sure enough to use the completely self-sufficient systems. The biggest part of drivers doesn’t feel assured when it comes to the self-propelled cars, even if the latter are most secure and safe. Only insignificant part of the people would feel assured enough to drive in the computer-controlled vehicles.
The big competition in vehicle production stays. Many companies compete to present new computer-controlled cars for roads, as one of the directors of auto industry told. However, the drivers seek to buy the cars equipped with the new technology. They also don’t want to use the full transition to auto cars yet.
Last year the test showed that the most part of the drivers reported about fear of trips in self-propelled cars. This year the new review showed that the fear remained almost the same. While most of the people are afraid of trips in automatic transport, the last review also showed that most of Americans, after all, want to have an auto control system in their cars. This situation shows that the drivers don’t mind of trying technology of automatic control, but they aren’t ready to give complete control to the vehicle yet and to refuse a manual control at all.
The drivers don’t stop think that cars can be unsafe and are incapable of replacing human driving completely. But the technologies constantly develop. People have to understand that today’s systems demand your control & readiness to drive the vehicle only in a case of safety issues.
Additional results of the tests reveal:
• 50% of people feel less safe on a highway with the computer-controlled automobile while 30% believe that it is the same as to drive a vehicle your own. A rather small percent of people say that they would feel more secure,
• Women afraid of self-driven cars more that men do,
• The most part wishes to see automatics in their next car while a quarter of people don’t desire or aren’t sure,
• The most part of the US people is afraid to get into the computer-controlled car.
The company continues to test the new system. They hope to make drivers more confident in the relation of the automated cars. They have already made the test of some aspects of the cars. These indicators gave great expectations on strong changes and improvements of the system. The following tests of the company will be directed to synchronization of different types of systems to check which of them works better. Every year a large number of people dies in accidents because of the mistakes and the control system helps to prevent it.
