Towards Navigation Safety for Autonomous Cars

There are many good reasons for getting excited about highly automated vehicles, or HAVs, which is the acronym used by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). HAVs can make driving more fuel- and time-efficient. They can significantly reduce traffic congestion and emissions by driving a precise speed, minimizing lane changes, and maintaining an exact distance to neighboring cars. They can also increase accessibility and mobility for disabled and elderly persons.

They can also increase accessibility and mobility for disabled and elderly persons.

Sharing an HAV instead of owning is projected to dramatically reduce a household’s yearly transportation budget, which currently ranges between approximately $8,000 and $11,000 per car. HAVs carry promises not only in improved road mobility, and accessibility, but also in producing architectural and societal changes that can make mass parking spaces and personal car ownership obsolete in urban areas. Above all, HAVs can help improve road safety by preventing car accidents that cause more than 30,000 deaths/year in the United States alone, cost approximately $230 billion/year in medical and work loss costs, and are caused by humans 90% of the time.
