A new study conducted by Mckinsey & Co claims that nearly 90% of auto accidents could be eliminated with driver-less cars.
That translates into a savings of nearly $190 billion each year in accident and health issue costs.
With this kind of trend becoming more and more of a reality, auto manufacturers are focusing on technical errors of the vehicles as opposed to driver error which could also sway insurance companies to shift their focus as well.
Though driver less cars seem out of reach, both Google and Audi have already started testing driver less cars with great success. That means in the next decade we could see the roads filled with driver less cars.
Current technology in vehicles is on the rise as well. From cameras to blind spot monitoring and even having automatic brakes, the innovations keep growing.
Only time will tell if driver less cars are the next frontier in driver safety.
With these statistics hold up when these vehicles start to hit the road, or are auto insurance companies in for a rude awakening?
