Dream about a smarter car?
BUT WHAT IF A SMART CAR COULD DREAM ABOUT YOU?
When you get into your car what do you think about? What you’ll do when you get to the other end of your journey, or perhaps what music to listen to? One thing that’s very unlikely to make its way into your consciousness is an accident, but one accident is one too many if it happens to you. However, what traffic regulations fail to prevent, technology’s resources are now beginning to take on. Welcome to the world of smart vehicle automation - the best thing out there with the potential to make accidents history.
The current challenge is to produce an automated system that surpasses the average human, which makes one fatal error every one hundred million miles. Autonomous vehicles need to be able to drive billions of miles without fatal accidents before human lives can be placed into technology’s hands. Currently, no autonomous vehicle has reached these billions of road miles yet, but that target could now be in reach with new breakthrough cognition and control technology that would allow our cars to dream.
CARS THAT DREAM… TO KEEP YOU SAFE.
