Have you ever been to one of those vintage car shows? Even if you haven't, you must have come across photographs of vintage cars from the past. They looked strong and robust, but they lack many of the luxurious options and features that we use in our technological devices today. We have watched our phones evolve from their simpler predecessors to more complex smartphones. The same is destined for automobiles.
One of the examples of these autonomous cars is Google's self-driving car, which was first tested in Waymo LLC, an American autonomous driving technology, in 2009. How do cars like this work? Such cars don't have drivers, you don't need to drive them. They will simply take you to your destination, all you would have to do is either type or better yet, simply speak of your destination! Highly probable, Google won't manufacture the cars themselves, in fact, they would just license the whole software system.
With your future autonomous automobile being 'connected', there will be more features to benefit from than just self-driving. These connected-car technologies are most likely to surface in the second decade of the 21st century, including apps by major companies for the purpose of infotainment.
With the advancement of technology, it is doubtful that the privacy of the users always remains at stake. Nonetheless, the innovation and comfort that these autonomous cars can bring to us, is appreciable. There's so much more to this wonderful innovation, have a look at the infographic below to explore:
