A recent survey conducted in Amsterdam concluded that more than a quarter of Netherlands civilians believe that with 10 years of time there will be driver-less cars.
The survey analyzed consumer expectations about connected cars by looking at the reports collected from 5600 civilians. When asked about their top expectations 37% said they need advanced GPS system, 32% said they need integrated Wi-Fi while 31% said it would be great to have a driver-less car.
Majority of people even stated that they want an advanced wireless system that allows them to communicate with traffic management personnel to obtain information about road congestion, traffic updates, road safety, and other emergencies. Besides that, the availability of parking space, accurate maps, threat protections, and self-maintenance are few functions that consumers will be looking in their cars.
Although connected cars offer dozens of benefits, most civilians are still worried about the artificial intelligence that will be used in driver-less cars. In case the system gets hacked or malfunctioned passengers might lose their lives. Hence, the security of the data has become a major concern for people who are into the driver-less cars.
