Built to crash
Whoever came up with the idea of crashing a car on purpose? Nope, it wasn’t Michael Schumacher on the verge of losing an F1 Drivers’ Championship. It was some boffins in a lab somewhere. Vague though it is, these people are geniuses whose day job includes smashing a poor crash test dummy to smithereens. They may lack the social skills to mourn the dummy, but they have bigger fish to fry. Although it looks like an agenda, they want sites such as http://www.clplegal.com.au to get less custom. The problem is not with the legal profession but unnecessary motor accidents. A simple crash into a wall tells them everything they need to know to make vehicles safer. It’s basic and practical at the same time. See, they are geniuses.
Oh no, the super smart cars are going to evolve into robotic overlords. An exaggeration maybe, but not out of the question according to Elon Musk and Stephen Hawking. Still, what do two uber brainy captains of industry know about artificial intelligence? Exactly! Not to side with the robots (ahem, take them first please), yet car accidents do have a fundamental link: driver error. Thanks to driver aids or a lack of focus, people lose concentration. And, that is without mentioning tiredness. Driverless or automated cars are the key because their code can avoid mistakes. Sure, someone can hack into the computer and disable the function and cause safety issues. Still, what about those driverless cars, eh? The idea of being their future pet after the android uprising almost makes a person proud.
Cars will never be infallible, but they are getting close.
