In as little as 3 years driverless cars could be seen on UK roads. Many car manufacturers already develop vehicles that provide varying degrees of freedom for drivers, but as of yet none have provided drivers with complete autonomy.
However, it is worthwhile to note that driverless cars will only be operational under a limited set of circumstances such as weather, conditions of the road and time of day.
The UK’s Department for Transport believes driverless cars will allow people to be more mobile and productive as well as cutting emissions and reducing congestion.
It is predicted that the onset of driverless cars could be worth up to £28 billion to the UK economy by 2035 and will support 27,000 jobs.
