Approaching the Age of Autonomous Vehicles #Infographic #Autonomy #Vehicles

While the concept of self-driving cars seems like a futuristic dream, the reality is not as far away as one might think. With car companies plus technology gurus working around the clock, our roads will be filled with autonomous vehicles sooner rather than later – a major boon for the economy, the environment, and people’s safety.

As it stands currently, commuters in the U.S. spend almost two days each year stuck in traffic, and statistics show that each year, more than 30,000 people die in car accidents. The world of self-driving cars will help ease these burdens and more. Some positive benefits include:

-The cutting of CO2 emissions by 300 million tons per year. This is the equivalent of over 87 coal-fired power plants.
-Removing the necessity of up to 90% of parking lots.
-Potentially saving $190 billion per year as it relates to traffic accident costs.

In honor of the self-driving future that is not too far down the road, Swift Navigation, a San Francisco-based startup building centimeter-accurate GPS technology, presents an infographic “Approaching the Age of Autonomous Vehicles.”
