First, let us understand what automatic car is all about; they are a set of Cars usually referred to as autonomous cars, they are robotic, driverless, and self-remoting vehicles. They can safely move from place to place without any driver steering them.
These cars not only act like a robot but also has higher safety features than non-automatic cars.
Research performed about them, revealed that they can use a variety of techniques to detect their surroundings, such as radar, laser light, GPS, Odometry, and computer vision to make interpretations and take necessary actions based on Logical programs written into their memory.
The advanced control system can interpret sensory information and be able to identify the appropriate navigation paths for the tires and can also identify obstacles on the path and prompt the clutch or brake system to be activated.
Thereby making the vehicle make an appropriate stop due to earlier discovery of obstacles and earlier sending of a signal to the controlling unit to activate either clutch or brake system.
Some of the said vehicles may have driver seating on them but actually have no input to their movement except monitoring, while some may not need the driver in any way.
The idea of an automatic car had been in the mind of scientists even before the hybrid driving system was developed.
The actual difference with hybrid driving is that the car will go automatically once activated by the driver but has a signaling medium to notify the driver of problems such as approaching vehicles, obstacles, etc. and prompting the driver to take action.
But the fully automatic cars do not notify such to anyone but make their own decision quickly as a driver would do while driving manual cars.
The automatic car offers lots of benefits to the owner ranging from increased safety, effortless, helping handicaps, and less time consumption, to less fuel and power wastage. Besides, the initials high cost of acquiring such a car; the benefits out ways that of the semi-automatic or manual.
The major problem or challenge it may face is the maintenance engineers as many countries have not gotten enough experienced engineers or mechanics that can make appropriate repairs on such cars in the case of serious malfunctions.
And that can be attributed to the high number of electronic elements used in making the car controlling unit, such includes; sensors, resistors, capacitors, microchips, etc.
Therefore, to drive an automatic car, one may simply get into the car, turn on the ignition, set up the GPS unit in the car, select the location you want to go in the GPS, fasten your seat belt, select the specified speed and turn the gear and watch the car performing the remaining magic to your specified location.
As simple as it sounds, it is true. You may not actually be an experienced driver to drive an automatic car.
