Self-Driving Dreams: From Science Fiction to Reality
The thought of hopping into a driverless vehicle and letting it take the wheel sounds like a dream come true, especially on those long, tedious road trips. But the idea of self-driving cars isn’t something that just came out of nowhere. Oh no, it’s been brewing in the minds of science fiction enthusiasts for decades. Inspired by movies like iRobot and Total Recall, where the directors envisioned a world with no car accidents or wasted time in traffic, the concept of self-driving cars has slowly but surely become a reality. Honda is now releasing level 3 autonomous cars, known as ADS, which will make your jaw drop. And let’s not forget about Google’s testing of Waymo, the “world’s most experienced driver.” Sure, it may be a while before these cars are at your local dealer, but in the meantime, we can all keep dreaming of a future where autopilot is just a funny memory (The Tempest).
