Self-Driving Cars

Introduction
Technological advancement in the world today has seen the development of more efficient and sophisticated machines that make work easier and avoid errors that are caused by humans. In this case the development of self-driven cars also known as autonomous cars has been considered as a major milestone in the car manufacturing sector. Although the majority of the manufacturers have not yet embraced the idea but some few other manufacturers have already assembled the cars and tested their efficiency and functionality as compared to the normal cars.
Manufacturing companies
One of the companies that are known to have interest in the assembling of self-driven cars is Telsa Company. So far Telsa has been able to develop a model S self-driven car that has been tested and proven to be effective. Telsa Company through its chief executive officer Elon Musk has announced that the company is looking forward to manufacture more cars since they now have the expertise and required technology to increase its production that will change transportation and cars in general.
Apple is another example of a company that is involved in the self-driven cars. Apple was interested in autonomous cars due to its vast customer market. In order to improve their service delivery and efficiency self-driven cars was the perfect move they would try. Through apple’s software innovation capabilities it has been able to announce the production of more self-driven cars in the future in order to provide diversity to the customers Meyer, 2015).

How self-driven work
Self-driven cars have been fitted with software that enables then to sense their surrounding and navigate without the help of human participation. This is possible through the installation of GPS and navigation systems. In addition to that, other useful things like radars, sensors and videos are also fitted in the self-driven cars. Designated destination is facilitated through the navigating systems that enable these cars to focus on the expected while sensors process the data recorded regarding the position where cars are located. Furthermore, inbuilt maps are able to control and guide self-driven cars to required destination. Processors of data on the other hand are important since they ensure the correct path is achieved and obstacles are avoided at the correct time and place. All these software installation are generally similar and common to all self-driven cars. Therefore improvements can be done in the future to ensure more improved and perhaps new models of self-driven cars.
Advantages
Self-driven cars have been known to reduce number of accidents on the roads. This is because they are not under the control of human instead they are controlled by computer systems that are not subjected to errors and distractions. In addition to that self-driven cars reduced traffic congestion since they are able interprets data and navigate using other roads. Also, it provides multi-tasking since the computer control’s the cars giving passengers on board to do other things. Finally, it allows persons with disabilities to move with ease from one place to another as compared to normal cars where persons with no feet to drive.


Disadvantages
Self-driven cars would experience limited usage. This is because not all regions of the world can afford the cars example the developing countries may not use them. In addition to that it requires intelligent and highly educated persons in order to interpret data while using them. Also, computer software is susceptible to hacking and finally it promotes unemployment among people in the community drivers (Anderson, Kalra, Stanley, Sorensen, Samaras, Oluwatola & Rand Corporation, 2014).
Conclusion
The development of self-driven cars is a major innovation facilitated by advanced technology. Although it is not yet wide spread in the market, it is the aspiration of the manufacturers to produces more self-driven cars in the future most probably in the year 2020. Self-driven cars are efficient and safe which make its development to be considered as a positive change in the cars manufacturing.
