What Does the Car of the Future Look Like?

WHAT DOES THE CAR OF THE FUTURE Autonomous cars will account for up to 75% of vehicles on the road by the year 2040. SAFETY Car crashes cost the U.S. economy $230 4 MILLION CARS OF TODAY BILLION/YR adults drink and drive each year Based on a survey done in 2011 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 80% of the crash scenarios involving unimpaired drivers could be prevented using Connected Vehicle Technologies (V2V) In 2010 there were 35,000 SELF-DRIVING deaths due to car crashes in the U.S. CARS and 3,500 BENEFITS around the world everyday Self-driving cars are programmed to follow local traffic laws 14% Autonomous braking alone will reduce car Distracted, tired or impaired drivers will be less dangerous on crashes by the road Vehicular communication systems could help avoid up to 81 percent of all traffic accidents of vehicle 90% Vehicular communication crashes can systems are networks that allow vehicles and roadside be attributed to driver error units to share traffic information with one another CARS OF FFFICIENCY TODAY 4.2 BILLION HOURS Traffic congestion costs the U.S. economy... are wasted in traffic each year 1000 $ 0000 O $ O000 $ 00 $ $ 00 $ $ O 0 That's one work week for every traveler $87.2 BILLION A YEAR 1/3 of all accidents and & 10% of police time is spent enforcing traffic laws 1/4 of all fatal accidents occur at intersections SELF-DRIVING BENEFITS CARS Self-driving cars can follow each other more closely, increasing existing space on the road V2V communication would schedule the Faster reaction times and a cars to move into reduction of accidents will lead to improved intersection efficiency an intersection seamlessly POLLUTION AND THE ENVIRONMENT CARS OF 22% TODAY OF CO2 EMISSIONS comes from cars and trucks 2.8 BILLION GALLONS SELF-DRIVING CARS of wasted fuel each year due to congestion Weight Reduction from 75% 4,000 LBS TO 750-1,000 LBS of current fuel emissions are caused by the weight of the vehicle BENEFITS 56% Reducing the weight Self-driving cars will reduce the amount of starting and stopping of cars will reduce fuel emissions by Self-driving cars will use elec- ACCESSIBILITY tric recharging infrastructure more efficiently Self-driving cars will provide mobility for By the year 2050 there will be an estimated 44 MILLION PEOPLE OVER THE AGE OF 75 those who have difficulty driving safely TECHNOLOGY OF THE FUTURE As driverless cars evolve, human interfaces such as the steering wheel, brakes and gas pedal may disappear and be replaced with sensors and software Sensors ELECTRO-OPTICAL/ INFRARED CAMERAS Detects lane departure and helps to avoid reverse collisions VEHICLE TO VEHICLE(V2V) AND VEHICLE TO INFRASTRUCTURE (y) LIGHT DETECTION AND RANGING (LIDAR) COMMUNICATIONS (V21) Provide accurate relative distance data Provide accurate relative distance data RADAR Adaptive cruise control reduces the speed of a vehicle in response to other vehicles and objects in its proximity, using a combination of throttle control, transmission downshifting and light braking Provide reverse collision detection and adaptive cruise control Software Using LIDAR and cameras, self-driving cars can gather tens of thousands of data points per second Locates the vehicle's position and its surroundings Interprets actions of other vehicles and people in the area Insurance Sources: DEVELOPED BY N NOWSOURCING ttp://ww com/autopia/2012/09/ieee-aut
