Many research organisations and automobile industries aim to find out how driverless cars will enrich our lives. Reno-Nissan alliance recently stated that they will release the first autonomous car based on Reno’s all electric car Zoe and Nissan’s world famous LEAF in 2020. Similarly, there are many other leading manufacturers digging holes and fetching out the mechanism of creating self-sufficient cars and are keen to launch their respective vehicles shortly. The invention of Autonomous Cars will change the mode of human being’s thinking.
The world will be fast beyond imagination and every job will be carried out quickly. One research program being undertaken by Temple University in Philadelphia is looking at how these vehicles might consign the traffic jam to the history books and reduce fuel consumption at the same time. Even the pollution will be reduced at remarkable extent.
Well, today it’s the future, and autonomous robotic cars from Google have already logged 140,000 miles on busy, complex city streets and highways with only occasional human intervention, and 1,000 miles without any human control whatsoever. Infact, Google moving a step further, has launched a dedicated company for its self-driving car efforts name as ‘Waymo”. In the period of 5 months last year between June and November 2016, Google has done remarkable progress in building autonomous cars which results will be seen soon.
Here we have an infographic about the growth of autonomous car market made by Get off Road to understand the basics about robotic cars. You will find some rare and unpredicted details regarding the history of autonomous cars, the challenges faced by engineers like Sebastian Tharun and Anthony Levandowski while designing this car. You will also know the science behind this car and how it’s prepared using radar systems and sensors to run without human interface. And at the end, you can check the charts showing predicted growth of autonomous car market.
