Would You Like to Ride in a Car That Drives Itself?
Someone people love to drive. Not in Kochi at the moment with her pothole filled roads in most places and traffic jams up the crack of every ass! But yes a lot of people around the world do love to drive. I don’t drive and I do not have a car or a license to drive either. I wish I could afford to get one now though. I do love long drives as long as it’s not with too many people and the road is good and we are going to a place I’d enjoy.
Now, a car that is backed up AI and drives itself, that would be cool. Just sit, relax and set the seat back and chill with some music on, maybe even have a cold drink and/or a snack. The car will drive itself to your destination. You just worry about getting enough rest on your way to work or to a party or to a wedding or just coming back home. No stress of navigating traffic, honking horns and using deft maneuvers to dodge other vehicles – the AI will have all that done for you.
Imagine how much people would enjoy commuting in these circumstances. It’s like one of those spaceships in Star Trek or another scifi show where you input the co-ordinates into the computer’s console and the system drives it for you, while you can do other things. Sure why not? We can program the cars so that accidents are avoided at all costs.
