Self-driving cars address only a third of crashes, according to study

Self-driving cars address only a third of crashes, according to study

The primary objective for self-driving cars, at least the ones pushed by proponents of the technology, isn't the convenience of the driver or passenger. That is just one of the goals or even a by-product of what these autonomous vehicles bring to the table. After all, one can only sit back and relax and take one's hands off the wheel and eyes of the road when you're 200% sure the self-driving car can safely drive itself through any road condition or obstacle.

Whether those products become available in the market on time, however, is a completely different matter. Under normal circumstances, Apple usually makes new iPhones, iPads, and Macs available close to when they were announced.
