HOW CAN AUTOMATED AND CONNECTED VEHICLES IMPROVE ROAD SAFETY?

HOW CAN AUTOMATED AND CONNECTED VEHICLES IMPROVE ROAD SAFETY? SELF-DRIVING VEHICLES Self-driving (or fully autonomous / automated) vehicles will not require any driver input and will have the ability to navigate independently. Using on-board sensors and evaluation equipment, they will have a 360-degree view of their surroundings at all times. Removing the driver from the equation will also reduce the element of human error in driving, which is the cause in 90% of all accidents today. A self-driving car simply will not hold a...
