Something that at one point was a pipe dream is turning into a reality. We’re talking about driverless cars. They seem like such a good idea, but would it really be something the public would take to? Would you travel in a driverless car?
All the big major technology companies are dipping their toes, or front wheels we should say, in the water. Sony, Apple, and Google are all testing, researching, and/or building driverless cars, or at least they are rumored to be. Perhaps this is the next step in technology, the next trend after wearable devices and smart TVs. Think of how it could improve your life. You wouldn’t have to worry about texting while driving because something else would be responsible for the driving. It would allow you more time to get some work done or catch up with social networking. On the downside, maybe something that isn’t even one hundred percent safe for people shouldn’t be left to machines.
Could you trust it? Could you trust a driverless car to get you to where you want to go safely? Is not having to drive alluring to you? Would you appreciate that time back into your day?
Would you travel in a driverless car?
