Driverless cars are being trailed in the UK for the first time, and while many experts say that this is only the first step in a long process, they expect the technology to be fully safe and ready to use by anyone by the year 2030.
The idea of the driverless car is to be able to increase road safety and allow people to travel in a much more efficient manner. The incredible new system will allow people to work, talk to friends, entertain themselves on the internet etc, as they make their way to and from their destination.
At this time the system is still in very early stages and there are still many more aspects to be tested such as performance in various weather conditions. One expert commented on how even though the technology is revolutionary and can change the way we travel in cars the whole project will need a lot of work when it comes to convincing people to invest in a driverless car, and that it will be a completely safe method of transportation.
Throughout the trials the cars still do have qualified drivers within them to take over should the machine run into any difficulty. Reports show that the driverless cars only seem to hit difficulties and require human steering when approaching and driving over potholes at this stage.
