Cars that drive themselves
while you sit back during
your commute to work are
just around the corner,
according to an international
expert who visited Adelaide
Former VP at General Motors
and adviser to the Google Car
Self-Driving Car Project, Larry
Burns, led discussions about
what travel will look like in the
years to come at RAA's Future
Mobility Forum on August 6.
"The future of transportation
is really exciting and cars that
drive themselves are much closer
than many people realise," said
Mr Burns says common
problems, like finding a car
park or dealing with peak-hour
congestion could become a thing
of the past.
"In the future, cars will
become lighter, cleaner and
'smart' enough to avoid crashes
and traffic jams," he said.
"Their connectivity will mean
they can collect and share data on
traffic conditions and coordinate
their movements to keep traffic
In the future, Mr Burns
says there will be a need to
transform the car to base it on
electric--drive and wireless
communication in addition
to petrol and the internal
"Things like telematics
in vehicles are turning cars
into 'connected cars' that can
communicate with things along
the road and with other vehicles,"
said Mr Burns.
"It's here already, whether
it's in your navigation system
or your Bluetooth, and if you
combine that technology with
autonomous vehicles -- they'll
literally drive themselves.
"Many vehicle manufacturers,
as well as Google, are looking
at those technologies and
seeing how far they can push
them to create cars that drive
At the moment our cars spend
90 per cent of the day idle; either
in a car park at our workplace, or
at home in the garage.
"To ensure our national
vehicle fleet is providing us the
greatest benefit, potentially many
of us will share the same car -- so
while you're at work, someone
else could make use of it during
the day," said Mr Burns.
"These sleek cars will also
benefit the environment, running
clean on electricity and hydrogen
and potentially even pump
energy back into the electrical
grid when they're idle."
RAA's Penny Gale said it was
"fantastic" to have an expert like
Larry Burns in Adelaide to look
at ways South Australia might be
able to take advantage of these
manufacturing industry has gone
through a lot in recent years,
particularly as we move towards
the imminent exit of all vehicle
manufacturing in SA by 2017,"
said Ms Gale.
"The ideas we're talking
about here might create new
opportunities for our local
motoring industry, whether we
build the driver-less cars here
in SA, or build the robots that
will help build those vehicles. It
shows a lot of promise."
Sit back and let your car drive itself
Cars that drive themselves are no longer the stuff of science fiction.
