Will we see fully self-driving cars before 2050?

Will we see fully self-driving cars before 2050?

You can actually leave some of the driving to the car in many ways, but the “faith” in fully self-driving cars seems to be waning. Scientists from Breda University of Applied Sciences believe that the self-driving car will not be “smart” enough for inner cities in the coming decades.

TNO recently reached out Very optimistic resultsBut mobility professor Ineke Sbae from Breda University believes expectations are too high. We don't have to explain to you that children are not road signals, but “smart” self-driving cars do not see this difference, according to Sababi.

It turns out that human behavior is very complex

This is one of many examples of where things can go wrong in inner cities. “There is a lot of confidence in this feasibility. Self-driving cars have been tested for years in different conditions, but human behavior seems to be very complex. Before self-driving cars understand human behavior, let alone the unpredictable behavior of children playing in space.” “On the street, it would take decades of testing and developing the algorithms further,” explains Sbae Car Week.


According to her, it is better to focus on innovations that allow the car to support the driver, rather than completely replace the driver. “Examples include emergency braking systems, lane keep assist, and blind spot detection. Until now, these systems have focused primarily on driver and passenger safety. It is time to use these technologies to make vehicles safer and more attractive to other road users and their environment.”

For example, the technology can restrict drivers' use of smartphones, but it can also detect fatigue and alcohol consumption. Spapé is also a big supporter of the controversial Intelligent Speed ​​Assist (ISA). “Intelligent speed assistance, which automatically limits the speed of vehicles in accident-prone locations such as the city center and around schools, could provide a breakthrough. Trials are currently underway in Amsterdam to automatically limit the speed of e-bikes.” This may provide a prelude to a broader mandatory application of this alternative, also for cars, “Sabi is finished.
