Ever wondered whether you would always like to have control over your car or have it completely automated so that it drives itself? Would that be a good idea? Let’s dive into the discussion. Read on to find out.

Having a car completely automated would mean it will act as a robot in response to sensors and other activators. Would you like to give full control to your car and let it decide everything? Are you comfortable with the idea?

As for me, I am not. I would at least like to have control over my car via remote controls or something similar.

If my car drove itself, I wouldn’t be fully aware if it is responding correctly to sensors and activators all the time. I wouldn’t be aware of any problems it is facing until some damage or accident happens. So I am unwilling to take the risk especially if I am on a ride with my family.

What if a fully automated car could give me warning signs? The problem still exists in that whether I am able to fix the problem myself or even trace a gas station nearby. Again I am unwilling to take the risk and would like to have some control over my car.

It would be nice, on the other hand, to let all the burden of driving to my car itself. I would just have to give the instructions to the car and it would take me to my desired destination(s). It would be fun going on rides like that with friends and family as well but the pressure and worry would still be there at the back of my mind about the risks I have talked about earlier. So which type of car would you prefer?

Judging the pros and cons of having a car that drives itself, I have to conclude that it is not that great an idea. It is always great to let the glasses down and my hair down, be seated in the driver’s seat, look for traffic signals and carefully drive the car myself. I would like to have power over my beautiful car and actually drive it and enjoy.

Better still, a fully automated car should have the option of giving its control over to the owner of the car on the road so that he is able to guide it and actually drive it when things go astray. Having this option as well gives the owners of cars that drive themselves some level of relief, protection and safety.

What would be your opinion on this? Would you opt for a fully automated or partially automated version of your car? Think about it and I think you will agree with me.
