Human Factors in Driverless Cars
I’m Ed Smith, a Self-Driving Car Accident Lawyer. Autonomous cars promise to reduce accidents, save time, and dramatically improve human efficiency. Manufacturers of self-driving car technology, such as GM, Daimler-Bosch, Ford, Volkswagen, BMW, Renault, and Tesla, along with ride-sharing serving providers such as Uber are already testing semi-autonomous cars on the roads. These cars currently do have a human backup driver present in the vehicle during a road tests. Analysts estimate that the initial phase of commercial release of these vehicles on the roads will also involve some degree of human interaction.
