We are all awaiting the arrival of autonomous cars with excitement. What we once could only imagine when dreaming about the future could soon become a reality. Would you dare to drive in self-driving car? Certainly you would not want to miss opportunity of becoming the part of the future? Even true fans of driving are interested to find out what would it be to let the car be in charge. Just imagine how much more relaxing the driving would be. You could drink coffee, read the newspaper, play games on your smartphone or even put on make-up on your way to work.

Driverless cars could really make life easier. We could expect less traffic accidents, traffic would be more regulated and we would have had much more time. So why are these cars not yet available on the market? Although a lot of progress is done in this area, driverless cars have a long way to go before they can get to the market. The exact date of when you might use these cars is still unknown, but a lot of companies and scientists are working hard to make this happen as soon as possible.

Before we could see autonomous vehicles on the road they will have to solve problems. Up to now, it still hasn’t been tested how they cope in different weather conditions. It is unknown what will their performance be on terrain covered with snow and ice. Certainly you want your car can drive in the snow also, right? This problem should be solved by 2020. By then the number of sensors embedded in the environment will be increased making it easier for driverless cars to navigate in various conditions. In this interesting infographic you will find out more about problems driverless cars face but also about their solution.
