The future of driving is here, and it’s not what you think. The reality?

We’re going to be riding in fully automatic cars sooner than we think. With the push for a cleaner environment and more time on our hands, this new technology could change the world as we know it. In this article, I want to discuss some things that you should do now so your life isn’t turned upside down by these advances in technology!

As technology advances and capabilities to do things with less effort becomes more common, it’s inevitable that many of the things we do daily will become even easier and hands free. With the likes of tesla creating their immaculate electric cars that have autopilot modes, it’s only so long before we will have cars driving themselves. But we believe our beloved trailers wont be advancing too far just yet where they’re driving themselves to our desired location, so trailer parts and ease of sourcing should stay the same for now.

So a world full of cars that pilot themselves, what could this mean?  Well, for one it means less time wasted on traffic jams and also a much cleaner environment. It has been said that the air in Beijing is so bad because of pollution from cars driving around all day. The idea of having an automated vehicle would make this a thing of the past!

Automatic cars are not just going to be taking over our highways, but they will have other uses too like warehouse vehicles being able to go up and down zig zag tracks with ease without crashing into any boxes or human beings who may get in their way.

Technology is advancing every day and by 2030 we could very well see more than 50% off road accidents caused by humans eliminated because there was no driver at the wheel. Technology advances in every sector, not just cars, for example anti fatigue matting was designed for heavy labour workplaces so that employees suffer less joint pain.

The technology and money invested into robots making them become more ‘human’ is excelling each year, currently in the US there are robots used in fast food restaurant chains to flip burgers. Many tasks that require a human to do are in fact replicable, especially ones that are simply a repetitive labour task and not so much thinking. We will see this in no doubt in modes of transport sooner than you could imagine, and it’ll be a huge change for society.

Does this mean manually driving cars won’t exist at all?  No, but it will be a much smaller niche market.

Ever since the first car was invented there have been debates about how and why to drive them manually or use automatic cars. The reality is that driving an automatic car can save you money on gas as they are more fuel efficient than manual ones depending on your style of driving (getting better over time), plus most people don’t know how to change gears in manual anyway!

So it doesn’t meant the end of manual driving for us petrol heads, and rightly so. Driving a car can be fun in circumstances, especially if its a nice sports car. But the whole point of this isn’t to stop humans from enjoying their time driving or simply to just convert to a robot world, its for safety. Majority of crashes are caused due to human error, whether it be loss of vision, falling asleep at the wheel, lack of reaction time, these are all things that could cause someone to crash or put them off driving.

Having auto pilot cars means that these people still have the opportunity to drive to places and not be restricted to public transport or simply just having to get others to do the chores for them. It’s about creating safer roads and opportunities for everybody.

It’s worth noting that although cars are advancing and it may seem like were moving to a safer world of transportation, disasters can still happen. So it’s best you’re still prepared for car crashes and flame outs, so investing in CO2 fire extinguishers for your car and workplaces is still a wise choice.

Whether you like driving or not, the future is going to be filled with autonomous cars and we need to start planning for it now. This article provides a helpful overview of what needs to happen before companies can deploy fully automated vehicles on public roads so that society has time prepare itself for this new reality. The first step in preparing yourself is understanding how auto pilot technology will affect your day-to-day life as well as the lives of those around you.
