The process of robotics worldwide is already running

Recently Elon Musk revealed the secret of Millennium of the camera above the rear view mirror of the car Tesla Model 3. Although the main purpose of any camera is to shoot what is happening around, found out some details. So, the camera will follow the vehicle in the moment when it works on autopilot or for rent, until the desired host (Musk believes that it will be «repel» part of the cost when buying a car). Other camera feature: driver identification (if several) and automatic adjustment of all systems to a specific person. From seats and mirrors to the configuration of the climate system. The development of Tesla is leaps and bounds, is widely used on roads, and the car itself is able to come with Parking nearby. It is a reality, which we read as fiction, some 5-10 years ago. But I assure you, it will take quite a bit of time and robotics will become as commonplace as using a phone to pay at the checkout in a super market. Moreover, the current situation in the world that have.

What is national car-sharing

What is the usual car-sharing — we all know the benefit in our country it is developing by leaps and bounds. But the concept of people's car-sharing much less is known. Its essence lies in the fact that the car owner can share in the days when he doesn't need one. The lease is given for 1 day so you could take the car and return it to the place of not later than the time when he will need the owner (but often more profitable to take on longer term, for example, while you are sick or went on vacation). Of course, the owner received for it a reward. You can share not only a car but a scooter, a scooter or a bike. The main thing to get it back. Today, such sharing is quite actively developing in Europe.

Conventional car in the national rank in Spain can be rented from € 20/day

But the Tesla will cost you almost 10 times more expensive.

But in order to begin to take your car rental, you must do some action with it. To sign the contract to equip the necessary electronics (to open it with your phone, for example) may show the car service company that will act as an intermediary, etc. moreover, you will need some way to describe the visible and hidden damage, if any, and in the case of the new — you must find the culprit and recover the cost of repairs and so on. Maybe that's why up until the folk boom of Schering, who knows.

But Elon Musk all this is taken into account. In fact it is already finished Tesla device that can be shared with others. It is so stuffed with electronics that give access to the interior, any person who has paid the daily hire is not difficult. Musk can quickly release an app similar to conventional car sharing, but within it we will see only the Tesla and only those whose owners have agreed to donate your car rental. Also the presence of cameras in a circle and inside the cabin eliminates damage to the vehicle, and various sensors will track hits or hidden damage, which appeared during the lease term. Agree, when you can take your car hire with one touch and you're sure for his safety — many would agree.

I wanted to take the Tesla Model 3 in the popular car-sharing in Spain. Was registered and contacted the owner. He was ready to give riding in the car with one «but». He delivers it-enabled Valet parking. This means that the machine can't go faster than 100 km/h and acceleration it is not like in the original. So, Tesla technology already use for safe sharing.

we are safe Queens, founder

But this is only the first step. The second, which certainly will follow — is the incorporation of a fully Autonomous autopilot!

How safe are the cars with the autopilot?

Even back in 2018, Tesla published the first statistics on the safety of their own car, comparing its performance with the average for the country (USA). Then the figures show that their cars (without autopilot) get into accidents 2 times less frequently than others. During operation of the autopilot the number of accidents was reduced by half. Since then much water has flowed and the quality of the autopilots has improved a lot. The key feature of such systems is that the algorithms are constantly updated and Tesla cars just (almost like your iPhone) with new features.

a See how the autopilot does not allow Tesla to collide with human

The Issue of security when using the autopilot, in my opinion, is the most important. A few years ago for his accurate work was the correct road markings, clean roads, established by GOST road signs, etc., then today it all went by the wayside. Car found «computervision» and just evaluate the traffic situation around them. In addition, the autopilots use machine learning and every day getting smarter and smarter. Given that Tesla cars are always online, engineers and developers get a huge amount of information, which is subsequently analysed by means of artificial intelligence and later became a part of the algorithm. Not far is the day when the car will start «chat» each other advance warning of the manoeuvre, the bus stop, complex traffic situations, etc., to reaching behind the car in advance was ready for action. From the point of view of technology — nothing is difficult anymore, all sold. You only need to gather it all together. As a puzzle.

Modern autopilots do not need markup. They have «computer vision»

And what about the notorious human factor? With the autopilot it is just missing because no man and no. The autopilot would not start the car at the traffic light on distillation, will not «punish» nearby driver who accidentally or intentionally clipped him, do not sleep, do not drink and drive, do not get distracted by a text or not will swear with the mother all the way, thereby irritated and losing concentration. All of these factors, often become the cause of the accident. In case of a technical malfunction the autopilot can make a decision about emergency braking or a quiet Park with «hazard» on the side of the road. In the case of a person to do it a lot more difficult, because sitting behind the wheel we don't have information about all components of the car that can fail.

Who will be responsible for the mistakes of the autopilot?

But without the bugs too will not be. The only question in the statistics, however rude it may sound. If modern autopilots will reduce the number of accidents in 5 times, and the number of deaths in their result in 10, who will refuse? I mean, not even you or me, and at the state level. But what happens if, during an accident with the autopilot people will die? It is always must be to blame? In case of gross violation of traffic rules , which sharply jumped under the wheels of the car and there are no issues, are to blame. But what if there is a failure within the autopilot or did not load one of the many sensors? Who will be responsible for a human life? The question, really, is very difficult. You can conduct many examinations to figure out the specific reason will be that during the wizard fixed the bad sensor. Then it is possible to throw all the cones and get the answers. Well, let's say.

And if it turns out that the car was technically sound and the autopilot made the wrong decision? Or the situation was so unusual, that equipment simply not found in a short time the optimal solution? In this case, to judge a company? Engineers? Designers? Possible. But the autopilot reduced the mortality to 10 times (for example) and potentially saved many lives. What to do with it? And autopilots in airplanes? They, too, are wrong, which leads to fatal consequences. Now close Boeing or Airbus? I don't think.

In the end, I come up for the rather unpleasant, but the truth. It's all about the statistics. If the introduction of the autopilot in several times reduce road deaths, then we must accept this as fact and not try to put a spoke in the wheel. Of course, in each case, it is necessary to understand what led to the death of a person, but that should not stop the process of improvement and dissemination of autopilots.

Automated delivery of the goods

Robots-couriers Starship has delivered more than 50,000 products

Today, large companies such as Apple, Google, Amazon, Yandex and many others gladly would have abandoned the customary use of human labor . In fact, we're already starting to see this process. Above the autopilot works not only Tesla, but Apple (according to rumors) and Yandex (they even showed it). Why would Amazon to do delivery by a person when they can send the same item automatically? Why Apple pay DHL when it all can make the autopilot? And so the circle. Food delivery, food, taxi, anything. The area is developing so rapidly that when I Wake up tomorrow we will be in the future. And in the conditions in which is now the whole world (Yes, I'm talking about coronavirus) — this industry got a great kick to begin to develop by leaps and bounds. The world is changing rapidly and we have to change with it.

are we Ready for the autopilot?

And here arises the main question: we are ready? Not personally you or I, and mankind in General. Because in the first place for people — it is the loss of jobs. Will gradually disappear couriers, freight forwarders, taxi drivers. Then machinists metro and long-distance trains. The trail will remain out of work aircraft pilots, etc. it is Clear that this will not happen immediately, but gradually. Today , and drone trucks carrying goods in the Nordic countries. That is capable of autopilot of the car we also found. And if a person identified automation facilitates our life and makes it more comfortable, what about humanity?
