    Driverless Cars

    With the modern technologies emerging, car industries begin to develop driverless car. It uses electronic and other technologies. These cars have a driver present but also capable of driving independently. Vehicle manufacturers and their systems suppliers continue to explore the opportunities for full autonomy (Dominiczak). Comparing to the old fashion vehicle, the driverless car has many new features.
    First of all, one of the new feature is a driverless car can handle the traffic jam while driving on the road, which it means lane keeping, change lane without having someone using the steeling wheel, and adaptive cruise control to maintain a safe distance. It can also maintain a safe distance while it is moving on the highway. A laser ranging system to scan the surroundings in three dimensions, and video cameras to identify objects such as traffic lights, construction signs, pedestrians and other vehicles (Waldrop).
    Next, another new feature of a driverless car is it helps reduce fuel use while driving on the road. Anybody who have driverless car can help them save their gas money. Driverless car uses less fuel on the road than the self-driving car if they go onto same distance. It takes about a year for a driverless car to use up all its fuel.
    Thirdly, the third new feature of driverless car is to use ultrasonic sensors on rear wheels. Ultrasonic sensor helps passenger to alert the car whenever the tires run out of air. Ultrasonic sensor also help passenger to notify ahead of time when the tires are leaking. Driverless carís software programs common road behavior while the car is on the road. The software takes over the control of the car no matter where it is.
    Fourthly, the last new feature of driverless car is using the aerial on the rear of the car to read geo location. The aerial receives information from the GPS, and sensor inside of the car helps it to localize itself. Driverless carís map updates the new positional information by the sensor while it moves. Driverless cars integrate sophisticated GPS systems, tech that enables them to sense changing road conditions, plus systems that enable them to act on that data to get you to your destination (Wall St. Cheat Sheet: 6 New Skills Driverless Cars Are Already Learning).
    Finally, the driverless car has its impact globally and locally in several ways. Driverless car makes the environment look fresh and clean. Many countries have decided that they should construct the driverless car factories in their countries. Most people think that they should get a driverless car in the future. It will create more job opportunies, and parking space is also reduced by billions of square meters. Vehicle crashes fall by 90%, saving billions of dollars. Supply chain and logistics are redefined. For the drivers, self driving cars could free as much as 50 minutes a day for users, who will be able to spend trading time working, relaxing, or accessing entertainment.
    Therefore, people believe that they can save a lot of energy if they use a driverless car to travel somewhere very far away from their houses. Using a driverless car helps people relax more and focus less on the road. Comparing to a driver car, the driverless car has many new advantage than driver car. Self-driving cars will also bring up new transport rules. The Mckinsey report suggests that the overall potential from autonomous vehicle technology will range between $0.2 trillion and $1.9 trillion annually by 2025. We look forward to seeing how much of these technological advancements really come to pass. We also look forward to enjoying a relaxing ride with a morning cup of coffee and a newspaper during our commute.
