Demarco Cooper Ms. Brockmiller Emerging Technology 301 February 8, 2020 Future transportation technology: self-driving cars In California and Nevada, self-driving cars are being tested on public roads in preparation for mass production in the near future. Whether consumers adopt AVs depends on the tradeoff between their benefits and drawbacks. A self-driving car, also called an autonomous vehicle (AV), is a machine-controlled vehicle that can detect its surroundings and navigate without directions or control from people. It is designed to perform the same transportation functions as a traditional car. Three technologies are required to convert a regular car into an autonomous one: Global positioning system (GPS) – A high-definition GPS recognizes details such as curbs, lane markers, and street signs. Sensor system – This sophisticated system collects data about dynamic road conditions. Response system – The third system takes action such as steering or braking based on information from the other two systems. Working together, the three technologies combine the power of machines to process vast amounts of data with the human ability to adapt to a changing environment. The main potential benefit of AVs is safety. Human error is currently the sole cause of 57 percent of traffic accidents and contributes to 90 percent of them (Green, 2013). The Centers for Disease Control reports more than 33,800 deaths from motor vehicles per year (Centers for Disease Control, 2019). If AV technology can decrease or eliminate human error, the insidence of traffic accidents would decline significantly, saving lives and preventing serious injury. The gains in safety could change the role of vehicles in the contemporary world. People would become passengers rather than drivers, responsible only for choosing the destination and possibly the route of the trip, and could use travel time for beneficial activities. The elderly and people with visual and other physical impairments would experience greater mobility and independence. The third major advantage of using AVs is related to the concept of platooning, or grouping vehicles to increase road capacity, which reduces traffic congestion and fuel consumption (Fagnant, 2013). When the lead AV accelerates after braking, for example, so do the other vehicles in the platoon, clearing an intersection more quickly. “The idea behind platooning is that cars equipped with sensors react faster and more reliably than a human can and thus are able to drive closer together to increase traffic flow,” according to an article in Science News. The substantial benefits of AVs must be compared to their drawbacks. The cost of the new technology would be more than $50,000, a prohibitive expense for most car owners. Concerns regarding security and privacy also need to be addressed. A machine that can operate a vehicle needs to store a lot of data, some of it personal, making the data a target for hackers. If hackers can gain access to an AV machine, they can slam on the brakes, jerk the steering wheel, or accelerate suddenly, harming the passengers and disrupting traffic. No longer relegated to science fiction, AVs may soon be fit for public roadways, triggering a major change in global transportation. Whether this change is for the greater good depends on how those in This file created specifically for Omar Alshammari the transportation industry and in government resolve the drawbacks of AVs and help all vehicle owners enjoy the benefits.

Any resident of the city can join the Omaha Time Exchange and start earning time credits by contributing to other members. After earning time credits, members can spend them or donate them to other members. How the Omaha Time Exchange Works A member requests or offers a service by posting the request on the community board, part of the Omaha Time Exchange website. If you want to provide a posted service, you earn time credits by performing the service. If you want to receive a service, you spend time credits to purchase the service. The amount of time a service requires equals the number of time credits earned or spent. For example, if you teach a member how to play the piano for one hour, you earn a one-hour time credit. If a member weeds your garden for an hour, you spend a one-hour time credit. Examples of Services • Child care • Home repair • Legal assistance • Medical transportation • Language lessons • Respite care • Tutoring • Delivery This file created specifically for Omar Alshammari Special Projects Omaha Time Exchange participates in special projects for the following local organizations. Time exchanges for these projects are highlighted on the community board. Rest and Restore This organization provides basic assistance to people who need a helping hand after an illness, surgery, hospital stay, or accident. Open Space Gardens Founded and run by community members, Open Space Gardens creates vegetable gardens in areas that are otherwise unused, such as vacant lots, terrace areas, backyards, and open spaces. Neighbor to Neighbor This organization forms ad-hoc groups in neighborhoods to help people meet basic needs such as assisting with daily tasks, gaining access to healthy food, providing transportation, and performing regular visits. Service Participation Members are exchanging time in the following categories of services. The number of participants reflects participation in the past two years.
