How Safe Are Self-Driving Cars?
We may not have flying cars, but self-driving cars are pretty close! People have fears about driverless cars just like they have with any emerging technologies, but autonomous vehicles cut down on so much human error that there's really nothing to worry about. In fact, there's a lot to get excited about, because autonomous vehicles have the potential to radically address everything from police brutality and sexual assault to climate change and the the plight of America's poor.
Tesla Motor Company
If you hasn't heard of Tesla motors, you must be hiding under a rock. Tesla is most known for its brilliant, fancy, and shockingly fast ELECTRIC cars. Tesla has made many great cars, such as the Tesla Model X P100D. Here is a little background on Tesla. Tesla was founded in July 2003, in San Carlos, CA, by Elon Musk. The first car was the Tesla roadster. You may not be aware of their first car, but I know you are aware of their cars today. Tesla has set the fastest time for the fastest electric car 0-60 and fastest 0-60 car period! What Tesla car set this record, you may ask? The fierce Tesla Model X P100d Ludicrous.
The First Car
Look, we all have that dream car. We all do, don't deny it. We all have seen or heard about that car we have to have. No matter what we do, we must have that car. I have had the same dream car since I was about 17. It's been a 1967 Chevy Chevelle SS, and it is the only car that I would ever own that would be a manual, because I am strictly an automatic driver—always have been, always will be. But this article isn't about the dream car, it is about our first car, which is just as poetic as that dream car that we all hope to get. I look back, and while my first car was a piece of shit, it was mine. I bought it with my own money, I didn't have help with it, I didn't rely on others to buy it for me. I bought it. I could call it mine. It was my first bit of freedom when I was a kid; it was my whole world. I could go and do whatever I wanted. I had a way to leave the house and travel around, go to the movies, go to work, and not have to wait or, god, hope someone would want to take me. No, I had something that could do all of that at the snap of my fingers.
The Technologies Behind Self-Driving
Self-driving technology for cars is the next big step for the industry. This is evident by the enormous number of companies that try to get involved in the development of the future of this technology. Obviously, many of them are car manufacturers that want to profit from the hype. However, the most interesting things are performed by the technology companies that develop special tools to make self-driving possible. This tools and the technologies behind them I evaluate in this article.
