Driverless cars are the future. Autonomous cars are capable of sensing their environment and driving by themselves. I think it is inevitable that in the future, all cars will be driverless. Perhaps people will not own their own car anymore, it will be more like a constant Uber world where wherever we are, we touch the app on our phone and a driverless car instantly arrives to take us on our journey. Perhaps only the very wealthy will own their own car.
Google and Ford are amongst the many companies designing and trialling driverless cars, and a driverless bus is about to be trialled for the first time in the UK.
In a generation or 2’s time, there may be no need for driving lessons, driving tests or indeed any knowledge at all about cars. The streets of Bournemouth could well look very different!
