As technology continues to advance, the strive for driverless cars becomes stronger. Driverless cars are robotic systems that are able to drive themselves taking over the entire role of the human driver (Gordon & Lidberg, 2015., Van Den Berg & Verhoef, 2016). The motivation for the developing drive for driverless cars are centered around being able to expand human mobility, increase travel efficiency, allow the traveller to focus attention elsewhere and improving safety (Gordon & Lidberg, 2015). This essay will examine the benefits of driverless cars. By focusing on the safety, congestion and legislation, society is ready for driverless cars and the positive impact that this new technology will have, will outway the negative.
