Autonomous Cars will make us safer

Safety regulators are beginning to realize that safety technology designed to minimize injuries, like the ever increasing number of airbags, isn’t paying the dividends it once did. When several tons of vehicle smash together there is only so much energy than can be absorbed, but collision avoidance technologies like electronic stability control are proving to save more lives than any technology since the seatbelt. That’s why automakers like Mercedes-Benz are developing “crash-proof” cars and big players like GM, Volvo and Volkswagen say autonomous cars are just over the horizon.

Excerpt from wired.com.

Substandard action, that is people/person, is the major cause of accident. 98% of accident cause is actually substandard action. In this matter, behavior based safety is much more important to prevent accident.
