Self-Driving Cars of the Future

Three companies, BMW, Intel, and Mobileye, have joined forces to research, implement, and produce self-driving cars by the year 2021. Lead automakers hope that automated driving technology will allow for more efficient and safe travel. The goal of this collaboration is to identify and develop a solution to a complete driverless vehicle, allowing humans to take their mind off of driving. However, this type of innovation is also troubling, especially in light of a recent event where a man driving a Tesla car on self-driver mode, was killed in an accident because the system of the car failed to recognize oncoming traffic. With this in mind, we can see that perhaps eliminating the human aspect of driving could lead to severe and unintended results.
