Forecast: self-driving cars will create traffic chaos

Autonomous transport will radically change people's lives and will bring various benefits to any city — no doubt about it. Just imagine: taxi always arrives on time and is much cheaper, the roads almost no accidents happen, and the air is purged from the exhaust. Emerges a very positive picture, however, a study at the University of California Santa Cruz gives a very unpleasant forecast — perhaps Autonomous electric cars will cause chaos on the roads and will create a long tube.

It is believed that the root of the problem will be the reluctance of owners of taxi services to pay for Parking. Instead of having to wait for a new order at a Parking lot in order to save the wasted cars will be able to travel around the area. A large number of continuously moving Autonomous taxis are much compacted by traffic, which will lead to the formation of long tubes.

It is Possible was discussed in detail in the study "the Problem of Parking of Autonomous vehicles", conducted by the transportation planner Adam Millard-ball. In his work he explained that the owners of taxi services will be cheaper to pay 50 cents hour work electric transport, than pay several times that much for a stay car on paid Parking.

Autonomous taxi will not only be able to avoid Parking fees wasted driving around the roads waiting for customers, but will also have an incentive to seek and create tubes to minimize the cost of their respective owners.

Specific ideas on preventing possible chaos on the roads yet. Perhaps the authorities will have to revise Parking prices or use a technology that monitors driving electric cars is wasted.

What do you think whether in the future the Autonomous car? Or do you think that people should drive cars? Your opinion write in the comments or at .
