The development of autonomous cars began in the 1920’s with the first autonomous car being launched in 1984 BY Carnegie Mellon University. Since then, Mercedes-Benz, BMW and other companies have developed prototypes of the vehicle. The technological rush for computerised objects has led to the rapid evolution of the automobile industry. In 2013, autonomous cars were driven in a traffic jam with normal cars and the states of Nevada, California, Michigan and Florida have made legislations allowing the autonomous cars. Other countries such as Germany, France and UK are also taking steps to embrace this technological advancement
The main catalyst for the development of autonomous cars is the exponential rise in road accidents that are mainly caused by human carelessness and errors. As a result, the UK government has invested over 8 million pounds to enhance research and development of these driverless cars to cause a revolution in transportation. According to Mitchell (2015), electric shuttles with no steering wheels will be launched in the summer in Greenwich, UK. Also, The Google Company is the world leader in autonomous cars research since 2010 and already tested its autonomous cars and revealed its findings to the public.
However, the developers of these cars have been unable to prepare the cars for unforeseeable circumstances such as flooded roads and other rare incidences, making the cars not as safe. The Google developing team stated that they will need to record these situations as they arise and make precautions for them. Google is hopeful that in the next five years, the driverless cars will be much safer than human drivers and will be the new mode transportation for people.
Various modifications such as WI-FI connections are expected to be added. The V2V (Vehicle-to-vehicle) WI-FI radios would enable cars to warn each other of any situations that could be dangerous. The chief executive of Peleton Technology, Mr Josh Switkes states

They have to work out for a strategy to avoid total phase out or to gain more productivity. Introduction of these products to a new market will open up opportunities and give a new breath for the product. Ford has redesigned its Mustang, an '60 icon, hoping to attract buyers from China and Europe (Ponchard, N, 2013).
Similar to traditional cars, the hybrid car also has a gasoline engine. However, the difference is in size. On a hybrid car, the gasoline engine is smaller and is used as advanced technology to increase efficiency by reducing emissions.
It is the energy storage device for the gasoline engine.
You cannot expect the car to protect you from being crushed by a bulldozer. So, at least look in front while driving; the car cannot do that for you too.
Perfect brakes are a very necessary feature for safe driving. However, nowadays, even if your old car has excellent brakes, they will still be worse than those in a late model car.
In the market today, we see some irony with respect to General Motors now gaining the industry lead in China, while the Japanese automakers are struggling in that market. The history of the automobile began back in the 1800's in Europe and continued growing into American manufacturers that in turn started the mass production of the automobiles.
The facts are obvious as there are more motor vehicle accidents occurring due to the irresponsible behavior of teenagers than other drivers on the road. However, this can not be wholly blamed on young people but rather on the driver education courses that are suppose to be effectively teaching them how to drive safely and responsibly.
Major factors in accidents include driving under the influence of alcohol or other drugs; inattentive driving; driving while fatigued or unconscious; encounters with road hazards such as snow, potholes, and crossing animals; or reckless driving.
Insurance is a subject matter of probability of an event happening at a probable frequency and intensity.
One of these places is in our cars. Driving can be hazardous because so many drivers today are dangerous.
One reason drivers today are so dangerous is video games. Dont laugh, because its true. Young people are now exposed to more violent images through video games
Hybrids are most frequently gasoline-burning machines which use its electric bits to gather and reuse energy that is normally wasted in standard cars. It is reasonable that when the fewer burning of gasoline takes place then lesser will be the discharges and expelling put out by hybrid vehicles.
