Hello software enforced speed limits.

 

What's wrong with software enforced speed limits?

There are numerous wrecks caused by people that just refuse to drive at the posted speed limits.

I'm talking about people that drive well below the posted limit.

Every single time I drive I see this unsafe habit being practiced by people of all ages.

You probably think that the posted speed limits will be too slow. Not true.

If everybody drove at the same speed automatically, then spacing between vehicles could be maintained, plus, no sudden braking and stopping means greater fuel efficiency.

Speed limits could be easily and safely increased so time spent on the road could be minimized saving both time and money.

Insurance rates would plummet or even eventually disappear. Automatic vehicles also means there would be no need for any restrictions on age.

Anyone old enough to program (probably just speak) a destination could just hop into a car and go. The only control needed would be parental.

Something, I believe, that you could use Raven.7. That's a very infantile attitude you have there and maybe you shouldn't be allowed to operate a vehicle. Regardless of your age, you seem quite childish putting your wants and wishes before the greater good. You should be happy that you are allowed to own and operate a vehicle and not relegated to the exclusive use of public transportation as a large part of the industrialized world suffers through every single day of their lives.

Jump in the car for a quick spin through the country or a trip to the beach? Fat chance. They have to hop a ride on a bus or train and when they arrive they're stuck with expensive taxi's, dirty, crowded buses or walking around aimlessly. Not able to explore any of the little out of the way places that Americans cherish so much. (Yes, I'm looking straight at you, England! You have a beautiful little country. Too bad your own citizens can't afford to explore it freely. Except, of course, for your upper class twits, "with their noses so high in the sky".)

The end of classic cars? Hardly. They could easily be retrofitted to automatic driving. What I'd like is an automatically driven, hybrid-powered '57 Chevy Nomad. No worries about it being damaged or totalled on an automatically-controlled road or street. Only the danger of idiots bypassing their automatic controls.

Welcome to the future. Whether you like it or not!

Not gonna happen, that soon, thankfully but I wonder if people hate driving so much then why do American's not drive the same boxy looking car that the next guy has.... These predictions are always off by many decades at a time, we were supposed to have 10GHz stock CPU's and common space travel to the moon and orbiting space stations by now.

When it does happen then I will await to see 10+ car pile ups daily from proposed 100 MPH 10 ft separation between each car when one has a malfunction or collides with something or someone. there's partly a reason aside from human's response time something like .16 seconds if they're on the ball. The car can't just stop, cars have braking distances too, so spaced out traffic is still going to happen since some geniuses decided that adding and removing lanes from freeways for miles at a time was a good idea, road construction (always happening here) traffic lights, and other things. While traffic would be more efficient it would still exist. But I will grab my popcorn for when this system gets the attention of terrorists and hackers, because it has target painted all over it.

Human's are losing their place in this world, once we teach machines to code all by themselves (not just compile) then it's game over cause there will probably be no need for us, time to get augmented...

Edit: I forgot to mention that you can't have fuel efficient cars that get 50+ MPG going at 100 MPH unless we ditch gas, and I bet an electric vehicle wont be capable of that for long enough for a while yet either battery tech keeps getting upgrades, but it never seems to translate into better batteries....

I would love it if all cars were autonomous. Give me a comfortable car with a nice sound and video system, and we are talkin. I have driven for 17 years. It's simply not fun unless I am horsing around and breaking the law.

If people wanted to manually drive, they could go to race tracks. Done. I actually think autonomous cars would be the greatest thing that could ever happen to automobile racing...more people would want to do it. The sport would have a huge boom.

And also in response to this:

You can have efficient cars that travel at those speeds. You see, if computers control all the cars, there will be much less of the biggest power-robbing thing cars have....BRAKES. You could gear a car for high speeds with relatively low RPM. And they could sustain those speeds for long periods of time because computers would be analyzing all the data about traffic and making micro adjustments in real time. Autonomous cars would reduce our gas usage by a HUGE margin.

Excellent, Tired of these cruiser drivers backing up traffic.

I however will happily stick to my 6 speed manual. I'll be around 600,000 miles or so by then, may need a new clutch or two

Honestly, this may be safe in practice, but this would turn into another dimension of cyber terrorism. Instead of just bank accounts going bye bye, people would be going "bye-bye" too. Automated systems are made by people, so in reality, they may drive safe, but their code may not be nearly as safe as it should be.

I could see this working very well for some areas, but I think they will say In Russia "you don't drive car in Russia, car drives you."

Airplanes, boats, and traffic/street lights are already automated by computers.

I think this makes people stupider by he minute.

Next thing you know, they don't know what all the signs of the road are. No sense of direction either.

Although it is a cool thing, I wouldn't get one.

Hell, by 2040, a computer would probably be able to do a realistic physics simulation of the car that has gone out of control and the trajectory of the debris before a human would even notice that an accident is happening. I'm imagining the car in question being surrounded by sensors that are examining road noise that we block out, thermal imaging we can't see, as well as the usual visual stimuli that we process.
By the time the human would have noticed the accident happening, the computer might have made several projected courses of action based and selected one based on years of heuristic analysis and full knowledge of the limitation of all the systems and subsystems of the machine it's driving.
It might even have time to pull something out of a joke database while it is maneuvering to avoid the accident, just to lighten the mood, all the while notifying the authorities of an accident that hasn't finished happening. All traffic gets rerouted around the area of the accident so there's nothing but empty road for emergency crews to deal with within a minute of the accident, and nobody gets stuck in a traffic jam.

+1

I believe this would be the way it would go if it actually happens.

To all those who think that they are more on to it than a computer are just plain vain. I don't care how awesome you think your driving is or how often you practice or how hard it was to get your licence, you will not be as efficient at it as a computer would be, especially in 2040.
