An article in the latest issue of The Chesterfield Monthly explores the topic of self-driving “Smart” cars and projects that we may see them on the road within the next five years. Self-driving cars will have a major impact on the way people travel in the future; by 2020, new cars will be able to park, brake, and possibly change lanes safely without the assistance of a driver. New technology will also mean new areas of the law, areas in which the law, luxury, safety, and enforcement must be considered.
This article mentions numerous technological innovations that would drastically alter the way drivers power their cars, citing the capability to charge electric cars with coils embedded in highways and at intersections.
For more information about the cars that will transform travel, see “Are We There Yet”, in the January edition of The Chesterfield Monthly.
