Recently there have been some major advances it driver assisted car technology, we are getting to the point where driverless cars are starting to become a viable option. The state of Nevada has just passed a law allowing driverless cars that meet certain criteria.
Many ask why this is important or is it even worth pursuing? Right now 40,000 deaths $40 billion in repair costs result from car crashes and untold billions in medical and legal costs. From an environmental standpoint the use of such cars will almost eliminate all traffic jams on driverless only roads. Right now America spends 4 billion hours a year in traffic, translating into 2.4 billion gallons of gasoline wasted idling in traffic per year. I for one am excited about this future, check out these awesome videos on driverless cars.
