Self driving cars may be here sooner than you think, and promise to revolutionize the way we travel. However, one thing will continue to remain constant. Even as humans allow cars to take over driving duties, most auto accidents may continue to be caused by human error.
Driver error is a major factor in car accidents. Drivers who are fatigued or distracted are at a higher risk of causing a car accident that injures themselves and/or other motorists. Self driving auto technology aims to eliminate, in part at least, the role of driver error in causing accidents. Many of these systems are designed to maintain safe speeds, and avoid traffic obstructions or objects in the path of the car. Many are also designed to warn the driver or activate the brakes in order to avoid an accident.
