AUTONOMOUS CARS: STATION WITH ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT!
Carrier, supposedly, a greener future, the autonomous vehicle could also be an environmental fiasco, because of the explosion of induced digital exchanges …
Electric motor, shared use, driving more economical than that of the average motorist … autonomous driving carries with it all these changes, promise of less atmospheric pollution and climate. Still, the equation is not so simple.
AFP has published a report based on a study by consulting firm AT Kearney , which interviewed 150 industry executives on the consequences of developing autonomous driving. One of Tesla’s main selling points (in particular) may prove to be an environmental disaster.
Among the impacts of the autonomous vehicle, there is the footprint, in terms of energy consumption and raw materials, of the on-board electronics. Automated driving devotes the reign of the digital world: algorithms, sensors, radars, lasers analyze in real time road and surroundings (classification of lanes, traffic, car parks, weather, price of gasoline etc). Other content also allows passengers to be entertained.
