23. Self-Driving Cars
- Chances We’ll See It: They Already Exist
Self-Driving Cars are the future, far more than many of the science fiction inventions you may see. People already use things like Uber. Whether that is due to needing someone to help them get to a hospital or drive their drunk selves home after a party. Why are they not on the road today? The problem isn’t the technology, it’s most likely your respective government.
Google has already made a self-driving car, which can mostly run on Google Maps technology. However, the only way to make sure it does run into any issues is to set up microchips all over the roads for them to connect to digitally. The cost for the chips is about a penny a piece, but many governments do not want tech companies to have this kind of access to roads.
