What Are Self Driving Cars?
Might be the simplest question to be answered in the world. The cars which are self driven with the help of Artificial intelligence , machine learning and in a futuristic tone a robot.
History Of self driving cars
The testing of self driving cars already began in the 1950s. Yes, this dream was almost 70 years old. As we see Nick Fury’s Car in Captain America: the winter soldier. Self driving cars might be the future obviously so that Google and uber are in the race. Later I guess Ola will also a part of this.
Audi Also tried to make an AI car in which Audi was 100% successful so as we expect from a big brand like Audi. Audi A8 was the one which can go on a maximum speed of 60mph. Low? yes, it is because its a self driving car with a robot and we can’t expect much From it.
Types of self driving cars
There are two types of self driving cars

Which Companies are in a race for self driving cars?
Well, I guess you’ve read about Uber’s self-driving car unit valued at $7.3bn as it gears up for IPO. it suggests that Uber has a small number of cars being tested in Pittsburgh but only during the day and in clear conditions, with two safety drivers present. They do not offer rides to passengers.
ATG’s chief scientist, Raquel Urtasun, said earlier this month that it is not clear when self-driving cars will be deployed at a large scale and for at least the next decade there will be a mix of robot and human-controlled cars.
So the companies which are in a race for these self driving cars are-
While I’ll tell you that There are thousands of companies racing towards this but these are the few top companies that are successful at some point.
Uber self driving cars
Here we go about uber. Obviously the best taxi service which started and one of the most successful startups in the world.
According to Linkshive reports that Uber’s self-driving tech is still far behind competitors like Waymo. The report, which cites interviews with employees in Uber’s Advanced Technologies Group (ATG), compares the self-driving cars project to a “science experiment,” and says that the cars “perform reliably only on limited well-mapped routes, and aren’t making much progress on handling more.”
Uber Self driving car accidents
An experiment is never successful at its first stage or we can say at infancy. Uber has got so many fatal accidents and was a prey of rumours.
Uber Self driving cars recently killed a man but it was not a mistake of uber but definitely, it was an example that self driving cars are still not quite safe to be taken on the road.
Google Self Driving Cars
Driverless cars are here already… sort of
Much of the autonomous technology used in Google’s self-driving cars are already found on the road.
Google’s driverless car has eight sensors.
The most noticeable is the rotating roof-top LiDAR – a camera that uses an array of 32 or 64 lasers to measure the distance to objects to build up a 3D map at a range of 200m, letting the car “see” hazards.
The car also sports another set of “eyes”, a standard camera that points through the windscreen. This also looks for nearby hazards – such as pedestrians, cyclists and other motorists – and reads road signs and detects traffic lights.
Have Google Self Driving Car Caused An Accident?
Yes there was a recent accident which like uber was no different as it was not google’s mistake
The video was uploaded on Linkshive. You can watch is right here.
Tesla self driving cars
This Company. Yes, Tesla is a Pure gift to this generation and Elon Musk is a magician.No company is like Tesla which has thinking beyond water and above billions of space heights. Thanks to the magicians and legends doing there job.
Tesla Autopilot, also known as Enhanced Autopilot after a second hardware version started to be shipped, is an advanced driver-assistance system feature offered by Tesla that has lane centering, adaptive cruise control, self-parking, the ability to automatically change lanes, and the ability to summon the car to and from a garage or parking spot.
As an upgrade above and beyond Enhanced Autopilot’s capabilities, the company’s stated intent is to offer full self-driving (FSD) at a future time, acknowledging that legal, regulatory, and technical hurdles must be overcome to achieve this goal.
Tesla self driving car Accident
Tesla’s Autopilot was the subject of a class action suit brought in 2017 that claimed the second-generation Enhanced Autopilot system is “dangerously defective.” The suit was settled in 2018; owners who had paid US$5,000 (equivalent to $5,220 in 2018) in 2016 and 2017 to equip their cars with the updated Autopilot software were compensated between US$20 and US$280 for the delay in implementing Autopilot 2.0.
List of accidents
- Handan, China
- Culver City, California
These are enough to describe about this.
Self driving cars are a great technology but are surely not for there use in 2019. They might be futuristic but are still just a science experiment. we should leave it here. Thank you.
