Driverless cars to make driving safer
Washington: New advances in safety technology could soon lead to full driverless capability for our cars.
For starters, consider new technology to help drivers avoid crashes.
Jake Fisher, director of automotive testing at Consumer Reports, who was interviewed and the New York International Auto Show, said that new crash mitigation technology will warn you if you are about to have an accident and will actually hit the brakes for you if there is something impending, CBS News reported.
It really makes a big difference and is going to save lives.
Then there are more passive technologies-like alerts and cameras. You can see what`s behind you, to the side of you and all around the car. They will let you know if there`s someone in your blind spot.
Driverless cars, like the ones Nissan and Google have been working on, won`t be commercially available for some time, Fischer said. But these technologies are the building blocks.
